The Competition

We sell a lot of woodworking tools here at Axminster but rarely do we see what they are used on. Of course, we see bits and bobs here and there in busy workshops and schools. But what we really want to see, is what the people at home, in the shed or garage, are getting up to.

At the beginning of April, when Easter was on the horizon and we were all dreaming of the long weekend ahead, a competition was announced. We asked you to showcase some of your skills by showing us images of projects you have undertaken and if possible, the steps along the way. The most innovative project would be chosen, with the panel being our Skill Centre tutors.

It's safe to say that we have been very impressed with the skills on show...

With 115 images and over 50 entrants, we were taken back by the response. Unfortunately, as with most things, there can only be one winner.

Some of our favourites

However, before we announce the winner, we thought we would take a look at some of our favourites. These all scored extremely highly and came so close to that £100 Gift Card.

All of the people who did these should be very, very proud of them and we would like to congratulate you on your fine efforts.

The winner is...

Tim H! For his impressive acoustic guitar.

Innovative and showcasing a great number of skills, this project was scored very highly by all of our judges. We would like to congratulate Tim on his effort, this really is a beautiful guitar.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this competition. With a response such as this, it's safe to say that we will be doing another one soon. So if you have any projects up and coming, be sure to keep your eyes peeled and be in with a chance to win more fantastic prizes.
