The finalists for this year's Young Wood Professionals competition have been named! Check them out above.
Young Wood Pro recognizes outstanding projects and the young wood pros that create them. The free competition is Woodworking Network's salute to woodworkers ages 18-35.
Each finalist earned its spot by being among the projects to garner the most likes on our Facebook page. We received more than 2,500 votes.
Finalists will now move onto the judging phase. Due to the wide range of the submitted projects and their applications, our team of judges will consider overall look/presentation of the project, as well as the complexity of its construction and design.
The contest winner will receive a $500 monetary award and will be featured on WoodworkingNetwork.com and in an upcoming issue of FDMC magazine. In addition, the winner will be recognized at a reception on March 13, during Wood Pro Expo in Arlington, Texas.
This is the fifth year that Woodworking Network has hosted this event. Drake Stuedemann was last year's winner - earning the grand prize for his spectacular coffee table
handcrafted from California Black Walnut and leathered Black Granite.
Martin Goebel's table from World War II surplus, aircraft-grade sugar pine was a previous winner
