    Here are the results of the first WoodCentral Craftsmanship Awards competition: the Guitar Stand Contest. Entrants were asked to design and build a guitar stand that would look good and function well. They submitted photos of their entries along with brief explanations detailing materials, methods and design decisions. Judging was done by Lee Grindinger, Richard Jones and me. We judged the pieces based on design and craftsmanship. Design considerations include function, originality, choice of materials, engineering and appearance. Craftsmanship includes how nicely the piece is made and finished: tight joints, fair curves, surface preparation, appropriate and well-executed finishes, tolerances, etc.
     Our sponsor, European Hand Tools, graciously provided our prizes for the competition, including a set of six Two Cherries bench chisels, a Lynx brand handsaw and a Kell honing guide.
