Congratulations to Autumn Doucet, Grand Prize, PWM Excellence Awards

 In Shop Blog, Woodworking Blogs

excellenceNov13The November issue starts mailing to subscribers in about two weeks, and inside you’ll find the Editors’ Choice and Readers’ Choice winners of the inaugural PWM Excellence Awards, and a little bit about each of them and their projects (with pictures, of course).

But here’s a first look at the grand-prize winning project, a beautiful small cherry chest with ebony and mother-of-pearl inlay (and a hidden lock), by Autumn Doucet of Wenatchee, Wash. She wins an expenses-paid trip to Woodworking in America 2014 (along with a gift certificate to ShopWoodworking.com)

Please join me in congratulating Autumn for her work.

The rest of prize recipients will be revealed apace.

    Lovely work, composition, and lovely figure on the cherry. The ornamentation screams “lutherie” to me.

    I know someone already used the adjective “exquisite,” but it’s worth saying again. Congratulations.
