It's not too late to enter the 2nd Annual Young Wood Pro contest. Part of Young Woodworking Professionals Week, the contest is open until August 28. It's easy to  join in -- just post a wood project you've done, with the hashtag #YWPweek.

At the culmination of YWPweek, Woodworking Network will award the Young Woodworking Professional who has demonstrated the highest degree of skill in a woodworking project: furniture, cabinet, art object, turning - you name it.

The winner will get a full write-up on our site and in Woodworking Network publications. You’ll also receive a trophy worthy of a woodworker and be honored during Awards Night at the Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo 2016, March 22-24 in Pasadena (The last winner, Martin Goebel, flew out to Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo in Schaumburg, IL to claim his award).
