Winner Announced!

The Craft It Your Way Competition is now closed! Thank you to everyone who entered. Both Matt and we at Axminster have thoroughly enjoyed looking through all the incredible entries we have received. But, there can only be one winner...

Congratulations Lottie Lucy for your Octopus entry!

Here's what Matt had to say about your entry:
"As much as I have a massive phobia of the things, the colours used are beautiful, I love the way the design elegantly flows across both doors."

We can't wait to see your design on an Axminster Craft Bandsaw!

Alongside our Winner, Matt also wanted to make a special mention to Lee Holcombes with your Wood Beetle Rehabilitation entry: "He's clearly put a ton of effort, thought and detail into it. I love the way the design marries the top and bottom panel together."

Mention 01

Also to Rowan Conan with the Sewing Machine Design: "Not sure if it was intentional or not, but I'm getting a strong Dr Seuss vibe from it. Again, I think it's a genius and unconventional way of marrying the top and bottom door panels together. Just remember not to push any fabric through it!"

Mention 02
