When you click this link, you’ll see all the submissions (almost 200 of them!); to sort by category, simply click on the relevant button next to “Show All” (and apologies; I don’t know that that “go to” button is or how to get rid of it – ignore!). Categories are: Boxes & Smalls; Seating; Tables; Casework, Cabinets & Bookshelves; Miscellaneous: Turnings, Carvings & Objet d’Art.

You can also search submissions by the maker’s name, using the “search” field.

The Readers’ Choice Winner, as well as the Grand-prize Winner and category winners as chosen by the editors, will be announced at the Friday Night Banquet at Woodworking in America 2013 (need not be present to win) and featured in the November 2013 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine…which comes out the first week of October…before Woodworking in America 2013, Oct. 18-20 (if only they’d let me shift the magazine schedule by two weeks…).

In addition to being featured in the magazine, all category winners and the Reader’s Choice Winner gets a gift certificate to The Grand-prize winner also receives a free trip (up to $1,500 value) to Woodworking in America 2014.

There are many great projects from which to choose; I have no idea how we’ll settle on the winners. But for the nonce, that’s your job.

Vote now!
