Welcome to the intermediate section of The Woodworker and Woodturner competition. The prize in this category is;

Pair of coarse and fine 11.5inch diamond bench stones (worth £160)

Kindly donated by Smith Abrasives, of Wrexham, I am currently testing them and Elliot Richards at Smith Abrasives has agreed that I can offer them as a prize rather than return them after the test. These stones are impressive at 11.5 inches long; they have the usual mesh pattern but also have a solid area to allow sharpening of small or pointed tools

and the runner up will receive an annual subscription to The Woodworker and Woodturner.

The theme of the competition is incorporating man-made material, MDF, ply etc into your woodwork. Although the piece should be mostly wood, to make the competition open to all members, any man-made material may be used to form part of the finished work to comply with the rules.

The odd screw or hinge does not count.

Judging criteria;

up to 5 points will be awarded for each of the following 5 categories;

Imaginative use of materials
Choice of materials used.
Quality of finish.
Did you find it pleasing?

In order to make it easier to enter only one work in progress picture is required; it should clearly show that the piece has been made by your own fair hands together with a few photographs of the finished piece and a paragraph on the idea/how/why of construction.

Closing date is the 23rd April 2005 ......Saint Georges day
