General Finishes 2018 Design Challenge

It’s a few days into July. My bet is that you’re full up with summer chores and have not been thinking all that much about woodworking. It’s time to start.

It’s time to remind you about General Finishes 2018 Design Challenge.

If you’re first thought is that this challenge is not for me, think again. In fact, let’s jump straight to the prize list. That will give you gallons of inspiration.

And the Winner Gets …

The “Best in Category” winner walks off with an Apollo Precision 5 spray system, valued at $1800.00. What?

Share a photo, list information about your project and you could own a fantastic spray system. Sounds too easy. If I weren’t a judge in the woodworking category again this year, I’d upload more than a couple of entries.

Other prizes include $100 gift cards to Klingspor, gift cards to Woodcraft, quarts of General Finishes products, and  assorted products from Scrubby Soap, Bloxygen, Eclectic Products (Famowood), System 3 Adhesive Kits and Mirka. (See a complete prize listing below.)

Woodworking categories include,

  1. TABLES
  2. CHAIRS & BENCHES
  3. STORAGE (Cabinets, Chests, Boxes, Dressers)
  4. INSTRUMENTS
  5. WOOD CARVINGS & SCULPTURE
  6. YOUTH OR STUDENT WOODWORKING (25 Years Old and Under)
  7. OTHER

Entries can be submitted July 18, 6:30 P.M. CST, through August 7, Midnight CST. Merit and popular voting will run from August 4th to August 11th.  Results will be announced September 3.
