Oakwood Veneer 2016 Tricks of the Trade Video Contest

Woodworkers across the nation and the world are encouraged to enter Oakwood Veneer's first-ever 2016 “Tricks of the Trade” Video Contest. With a grand prize of $2,500 to spend at Oakwood, along with two $500 runner-up and ten $50 honorable mention awards, expectations are high for both the quantity and quality of submitted videos, which should feature little-known, helpful veneer and edgebanding techniques. Oakwood unveiled the contest as a means to highlight and promote the usage of veneer and edgebanding, as well as to facilitate communication and knowledge-sharing among members of the industry 
 
“In our customer base, we count some of the world's foremost experts in wood veneer installation, as well as some novices who happen to really know their stuff as well,” said Peter Rodgers, Oakwood president. “With new tricks, tips, and techniques being discovered on a regular basis, it made perfect sense to gather up this knowledge from the community by way of a video submission contest.”
 
Oakwood plans to display all award-winning and other notable video submissions on their website and Youtube channel so that woodworkers and veneer installers can be informed regarding the latest time-saving, project-enhancing, or aesthetic-improving installation methods, some of which are expected to be virtually unknown prior to this contest. 
 
“Woodworkers often stick to themselves, and rarely, if ever, put on a megaphone to announce new techniques and discoveries that they have developed,” said Rodgers. “It is our mission to uncover these new developments and be the megaphone for the community.”
 
Entrants are limited to three video submissions each, with all videos a maximum of two minutes in length. Videos need not be professionally produced, but do need enough visual and audio clarity to adequately teach the presented technique. Topics must be in relation to veneer or edgebanding installation or usage, and there is no fee for entrants. Veneer and other featured supplies do not need to be sourced from Oakwood. Only one winner per person/company is allowed.
 
The deadline for entry is August 19, 2016 with winners to be announced on September 12th.
