lj_summer09Twice a year LumberJocks (a woodworking community) hosts build-off contests for its members. Each contest is different and asks the community to build useful and unique woodworking projects. This summer's task is to build a Garden Bench.

Whether you live in an apartment or on a grand estate a garden bench is the perfect place to sit, relax, and savour life's gifts. Create the ideal bench for your outside environment and join our Summer Awards! Be sure to describe why you selected the design and show us the finished product in its new home.

While most contests only reward the top 1-3 entries, LumberJocks rewards the top10. Prizes include

  • 1st place - 5-Piece Picture Frame Bit Set & Build-A-Box Value Package by Eagle America
  • 2 nd place - Archive DVDs by Fine Woodworking
