Craftsman’s Challenge Veneer Awards at IWF 2022: Enter by July 1

The VeneerTech Craftsman’s Challenge competition has been accepting entries all year. The entry deadline is July 1 for this year’s contest, with a grand prize of $3,000. Winners will be announced at a special event at IWF 2022 in Atlanta.

The competition, conducted by Woodworking Network (IWF Booth B10803), recognizes exemplary veneer work. The designer, craftsman, or manufacturer who enters the best work submitted in the view of a panel of expert judges. (At the last IWF, Jamie Herman, then a student at Vermont School of Woodworking, won the grand prize for an usually designed Tilt.) Awards also include $2,000 for the supplier of veneer for the winning piece and $1,000 to the salesman who sold the veneer. A search for veneer exhibitors at IWF 2022 shows this category of supplier, and the competition is open to any veneer brand.

There are separate category prizes as well of $1,000 each for Architectural, Cabinetry, Furniture, Marquetry, Specialty Products, and Student Work. Enter online and post your entry, including photos. Top quality images are essential to show off the veneer.
