We are beyond excited to share this list with you and hope seeing this and the build plan will help you decide which category you should Challenge yourself to compete in!

Finest Craftsman Category:

Ready to run with the big kids? Bigger prizes come with bigger craftsmanship! IF you want to step up to the challenge you must include the following in your build: 

  • *Two types of furniture joinery. 
    • Pocket holes and butt-joints don’t count toward this requirement, though you can use them in your project.
    • As an option, a novel form of joinery is demonstrated in the build plans. Give it a try!
    • If you use joinery we can’t see, please post a progress photo with the joinery in your final submission post. 
  • Use premium wood in a portion of your build. Consideration will be given to skillful grain selection and use. (Flaws can be features!)
