Calling all woodworkers under 30
The younger generations aren’t woodworking as much as their dads and graddads did. That’s a reality, and a real challenge for Fine Woodworking magazine, and all of its advertisers, too.
That said, there is fantastic work being done by people under 30. To showcase that work, and encourage other Gen Xers and GenYers to take up this fulfilling craft, Fine Woodworking is co-sponsoring a special show at The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine, at the school’s prestigious Messler Gallery.
It’s called Regeneration, and there are prizes for everyone who applies, even bigger prizes (router, clamps, etc.) if your work is accepted, and huge prizes (major machinery) if you are winner in one of many categories. Also, we’ll choose a number of pieces for a special section in our Readers Gallery in the magazine.
But you’ll have to move fast. You have until April 1 to finish your latest project, snap some photos, and apply. The show will run Sept. 16 to Nov. 11 at the Messler Gallery. And no worries–if you are selected for the show, shipping is free, paid for by generous sponsors.
So if you are under 30 and have caught the woodworking bug, you have no excuses! Go to the Regeneration web site to apply.
If you are under 30, don't miss this chance to showcase your work and win fabulous prizes.
Is this you? Or is furniture more your thing?
