Northern Woods Exhibition

Recommended Posts

I'll be heading down there to check it out. I don't think that you have any thing to worry about. It seemed like there was work from all levels there last year. I know you won't be the worst, well maybe i don't know if Cremona is entering anything :P.

I wanted to enter the 8 Drawer dresser that i made but i got a really nasty look when i asked if it could be emptied so i could enter it in the exhibit.

Maybe next year.

I don’t have any idea what you’re up against but as a betting man, I ‘d say you’re entering with at least a full house. Good luck!

Certainly nothing to be embarrassed about.  I think you'll be representing yourself pretty well!

There's not a chance that you'll regret entering, it's a beautiful and well done piece.

Like Rick says.  Are there categories to the competition like large, small, carved, turned, etc?

Thanks guys!

Yes many categories and both amateur and professional woodworkers. The work shown at these exhibitions over the years is simply amazing

For me just putting my work out there is a huge step and really the point. I don't expect to win just wanted to get outside my comfort zone and hope to get some feedback that can improve my work going forward.

That's a beautiful piece that you've entered. I don't think I'd have the balls to do that.

Thanks! Took me a while I've been thinking about doing it for four years :)

I get that.  I submitted one of my pieces to an American Assoc. of Woodturners competition.  I figured for the small entry fee I'd find out what the rejection letter looked like -- they could have done better :lol:.

I think that looks great.   Yeah there's all sorts of different pieces.

I hope to make it down this year... My wife is out of town so I'll have to talk the kids into going for ice cream or something. :-)

I'm gonna life up the glass and play with it :P.

I'm looking forward to seeing your piece and the exhibit this year.
