Wood Diamond Rewards 32 Cabinet and Furniture Companies
July 24, 2015 | 4:21 pm CDT
LAS VEGAS —The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) is pleased to announce the winners of their 2015 Wood Diamond Awards Contest. The CMA award program, dubbed the Wood Diamond Awards, was first offered in 2010 as a means for members to be recognized by their peers. Immediately the program became yet another benefit from the CMA to help their members market themselves. In the past five years, shops of all different sizes and types have entered and won. All judging is done by non-participating members of the CMA, assuring that the results are scrutinized by professionals.
 
“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 business,” explains Jim McDermott, CMA’s Executive Director. “This award program allows yet another outlet for that purpose to be fulfilled.” The 2015 award winners were announced on Thursday, July 23, at noon at the 2015 AWFS Fair in Las Vegas. All first place winners were awarded a customized plaque declaring their excellence in their respective category, while other winning entries will receive a certificate recognizing their achievements.
 
The winners represent 32 selected categories, for a total of 53 entries submitted by 15 companies in the United States and Canada. A listing of the award winners follows.
