CHICAGO, Ill. – The Cabinet Makers Association has announced that entries are now being accepted for the 2017 Wood Diamond Awards contest. The CMA’s award program was first offered to the membership in 2010 as a means for members to be recognized by their peers, including other woodworking shops.

This program was created as a way to promote excellence in woodworking and cabinetry. The members that participated and won awards were able to use their achievement in their local marketing program to promote their respective business in their area. This created yet another benefit to membership in the CMA.

The CMA was founded on the principles of sharing one’s experiences and ideas with other members in an effort to promote success and professionalism in the woodworking/cabinetry business.

This award program allows another outlet for that purpose to be fulfilled. As members view each others’ work and accomplishments, ideas are exchanged and the flow of information continues.

All judging was done by non-participating members of the CMA, assuring that the results were scrutinized by professionals.

Entries must be received by May 15. For more information and past winners, see
