We have a winner! The 2014 Young Woodworking Professional of the Year is Martin Goebel of Goebel Furniture.
Martin’s designed and fabricated his award winning entry. The design was created in reference to iconic construction methods which have proven timeless. For this project classic timber frame of both building and ship construction heavily influenced the design. 
The base is created in solid 5”x5” walnut timbers. A black toning of joinery was used to ‘low-light’ joinery detailing in order to silhouette major connections. 
The top is created from World War II surplus, aircraft-grade Sugar pine, purchased at auction from a 103 year old Pipe Organ company which was re-tooled during WW II for military component production. 
Along with being named Young Woodworking Professional of the Year Martin will receive feature coverage on WoodworkingNetwork.com and in Print. He’ll also be recognized during Awards Night at the 2015 Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo in Chicago.
We want to extend a special thanks to all of the woodworkers who entered and those who voted. We know there’s a whole mess of Young Woodworking Professionals who are nailing it and we want to make sure you get the recognition you deserve. 
Keep grinding away and we hope to see even more great work next year!
