January 30, 2019 | 2:07 pm CST
Genesis Products is the sponsor for 2019's Young Wood Pro competition.
Genesis, a leading manufacturer of laminated panels and wood components, will present a $500 check to the winner at the co-located Wood Pro Expo/Cabinets & Closets Expo March 6-8.
Young Wood Pro recognizes outstanding projects and the young wood pros that created them. The free competition is Woodworking Network's salute to woodworkers aged 18-35.
More than 50 young people entered the competition. Those entries were voted on by fans on Woodworking Network's Facebook page - narrowing it down to a top 10 last Friday at midnight. From the top 10 vote-getters, a winner will be selected by our team of judges.
Check out the 10 finalists in the slideshow above.
This is the fourth year that Woodworking Network has hosted this event. Previous Young Wood Pro Award winners were Nathan Deal for his 17-foot Great Auk Kayak, Martin Goebel of Goebel & Co. Furniture for his classic table featuring World War II surplus, aircraft-grade sugar pine, and Dylan Horst for his undulating ash and benge Wave table.
