Basis for judging:
Entries will be judged based on design,
craftsmanship and degree of difficulty. Design considerations include function,
appearance, originality, materials selection and engineering. Craftsmanship is
all about how well the piece is made and finished: tight joints, fair curves,
surface preparation, appropriate and well-executed finishes, tight tolerances,
etc. In the event of a tie or a decision too close to call based on available
information, arrangements will be made to have an affiliated expert view the
piece(s) or have the item(s) shipped to WoodCentral for final evaluation. All
contest decisions are final.
