Marc Adams invites you to enter the 2022 Craftsman's Challenge


Marc Adams returns as one of three judges for the prestigious 2022 Veneer Tech Craftsman's Challenge. He encourages you to enter your work that has some veneer or complete veneer in the project. There are several categories to enter and winning, showing or even placing gives incredible credibility in your work. Winning may mean you teach for Marc at the school someday! We look forward to seeing your work!


Marc Adams founded the Marc Adams School of Woodworking and has been woodworking professionally for more than 40 years. In 1991, he became a technical consultant to the WWPA, SFPA, AHEC, and the U.S. government, representing the United States on International Quality of Furniture Making.
