This year's challenge is to create a piece with "fluidity".
"Like grasses swaying in a summer breeze, the fluid motion is visible in the solid form of the wood." Create a woodworking project that portrays fluidity and/or movement. Be sure to describe your inspiration and vision - the interpretation is as important as the finished product.
Here at Rockler, we're already excited to see what the LJers come up with. There are some pretty great prizes involved, including a $400 Rockler gift card for the first place winner and a set of our Bench Cookie™ Work Grippers and a Rockler Mug for the winner and ten runners-up!
LumberJocks' build-offs are always fun, and the LJers turn out some incredible pieces. If you're interested in participating in the challenge, the details are here on the LumberJocks site.
If you won't be participating, you can follow along as the entries are posted between July 1 and July 31, 2010. The entries can be an excellent source of inspiration for your own woodworking projects. The voting will take place between August 1 and August 7, 2010, and if you happen to be a LumberJock with at least one project posted to the site, you are eligible to vote!
Good luck to all the entrants, and, as LumberJock grizzman said in the contest thread, "Let the games begin!"
