Canadians Building Together: Boxes

Canadians Building Together: Boxes

Welcome to Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvements' Canadians Building Together Contest.

The first event is Building Boxes.

During the week of October 12th to 19th we're inviting members of the Canadian Woodworking Forum to join together and build a box of your choice. It doesn't matter what your skill level is, or what kind of box you want to build. This event is a great way to improve your woodworking skills, virtually work alongside other woodworkers, learn from your peers, and interact with other woodworkers from across Canada. Plus, there are some great prizes to be won.

If you're not a member of our Forum, it's a great time to join us. It's free and easy. Just click here to begin the registration process.

Participating in the Box Building event is easy. Here is all you have to do:

 
  • Begin building your box the week of October 12. (We'll be announcing the start on our website, on the Forum, and via Social Media).
  • As you build your box, post occasional photos and commentary on the Canadians Building Together: Boxes section of our Forum.
  • Post a final photo of your box, and fill out the entry form by October 22.
There will be prizes to be won, and the winning boxes in each category may also be featured in an upcoming issue of our magazine, as well as on our website. Plus, we'll be giving some random door prizes.
