Woodworking Tool Contest

Lee Valley sponsored the first www.woodcentral.com tool-making contest, part of the website's craftsmanship awards program—an ongoing series of contests open to amateur woodworkers.

The judging panel included Chris Schwarz, editor of Popular Woodworking, Clarence Blanchard, publisher of Fine Tool Journal and president of the Brown Auctions, and Brian Ebbinghaus, Lee Valley's research and development manager. They met at Lee Valley headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario, for some hands-on critiquing of these creative and innovative functional tools.

Three first prizes were awarded: one for craftsmanship, one for utility and one for aesthetics. Five runners-up were also recognized. Congratulations to the winners and finalists, and thank you to all of the participants.

Visit the WoodCentral website to view photos and descriptions of all entries. The winning tools are featured on the front cover and page 2 of the June Lee Valley woodworking supplement. Look for your supplement in the mail in the next few weeks. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please contact us.
