Design Challenge 2010 – Deadline Extended!
We’ve been truly amazed by the incredible entries received so far for the CustomMade.com Design Challenge sponsored by Rockler Woodworking and Hardware. In fact, we’ve enjoyed seeing these designs so much, we’ve decided to extend the challenge one more week – the new deadline is Friday, February 19!
Plus, we’re going to let everyone vote on the top FIVE entries instead of the top three – there are just too many great designs, we had to add room for the best of the best.
Using Google® SketchUp (or other 3D modeling software), entrants are invited to submit their design for a piece of furniture that illustrates what they’ve been looking for but have been unable to find in the marketplace. Enjoy the process of designing your own furniture and win the chance to have that very piece custom made.
The winner will work with one of our talented woodworkers to have their piece custom made for them using Rockler tools and supplies (up to a $1000 value)! Winners will be announced on Friday, March 5, 2010.
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATES
Judges will select and announce the top five entries Monday, February 22, 2010. Those five will then be voted upon by the general public to select the winner. In selecting the top five entries, judges will consider the piece’s creativity and potential to demonstrate the beauty and craftsmanship of custom made furniture. All entries
- Must be an original, unbuilt design of a single piece of furniture suitable for home or office
- Must be determined to be achievable by an experienced woodworker with limited modifications
- Entries must be submitted here: http://custommade.wufoo.com/forms/design-challenge-2010-entry-form/
- Include at least one 3D rendering (jpeg image file, 5MB max.) of the piece of furniture using Google® SketchUp or other 3D modeling software
- Include the name of the entry
- Include a description (up to 300 words) of the piece, including choice of materials if desired
- Entries Accepted: January 18, 2010 – February 19, 2010
- Voting for Top Five Entries: February 22, 2010 – March 2, 2010
- Winner Announced: Friday, March 5, 2010
