Creative people are discovering the fun in using resin to create turning blanks, item encapsulations, bowls, river tables and more. To meet their project needs, Woodcraft continues to expand its line of resins and related products – and to encourage these makers Woodcraft will be sponsoring a contest in March.
A $250 Woodcraft Gift Card may be waiting for you – if you create a showstopping ring, pen, handle, river table or something else made with resin or a combo like resin with burl.
From March 1 through March 31, Woodcraft will accept online entries for “Pour to Win” – a competition to see who can imagine and then create a unique piece made by an original resin pour that will please the Woodcraft judges and the public. Learn more here!
Despite the limitations of sponsoring a nationwide
event during the coronavirus pandemic, Turn for Troops volunteers and Woodcraft store
personnel rallied in 2020 to turn enough wooden pens for military personnel to comfortably pass
the 200,000 overall mark.
Be ready when spring arrives to get busy sprucing up your home’s exterior and its outdoor living space. Invest family time to envision what projects would transform it into a more organized, inviting retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Woodcraft will sponsor its 17th Turn for Troops National Turn-a-Thon on November 7 and 8 and is asking volunteers to continue supporting those on active military duty or recovering from injuries by making handcrafted wood pens – at either a retail store event or at home for submission to Woodcraft.
In 2019, volunteers turned 15,385 one-of-a-kind pens for a 16-year
total of 190,609 pens. Woodcraft’s goal this year is at least 200,000 pens and
hopefully many more.
Teams of makers are invited to enter the Makerspace Contest on Instructables.com to win some of the $50,000 worth of prizes donated by Woodcraft, Epilog Laser, Ultimaker, Dremel, and Digi-Key Electronics. The online contest opened June 1 and will close end of day Aug. 31, 2017.
