Wood-Mizer Contest Winners

Portable sawmill owners recognized for building dream woodworking projects
 
Indianapolis, IN – Wood-Mizer announces winners of their Personal Best Contest - a tradition since 1985 that recognizes Wood-Mizer sawmill owners who have built dream woodworking projects by sawing their own lumber. The contest is open to any Wood-Mizer sawmill owner in North America interested in competing for their share of $20,000 in prize credits awarded to first, second, and third place winners in each of eight categories.
 
Mack Lowery of Terry, Mississippi won first place in the Homes and Major Structures category for building a 2,600-square-foot timber frame home. “I could not have done this project without a heavy-duty and reliable sawmill,” said Lowery.
 
Ralph Aartun of Pickens, South Carolina won first place in the Exterior Projects category for building a stunning timber frame display. “This project will allow us to display our exceptional craftsmanship,” said Aartun. “The variety of textured finishes demonstrates the versatility of our Wood-Mizer sawmill.” 
 
Nathan Brown of Barnardsville, North Carolina won first place in the Creative Showcase category for building a mobile solar kiln. “The beauty of this project would not have been possible without my Wood-Mizer,” said Brown.
 
Winning projects from this year’s contest are featured in a special edition of The Wood-Mizer Way magazine and all projects entered are showcased in the Wood-Mizer Project Gallery.
