...along with Good Woodworking and The Woodworker
To celebrate their 60th anniversary, Felder are running a fantastic competition in conjunction with Good Woodworking The Woodworker and magazines to find three of the best furniture makers across the UK – there’s also some fantastic prizes up for grabs.
Over the coming months, we will be running this fantastic competition in conjunction with Felder Group UK to discover who can make the best piece of furniture. The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18 regardless of skill level.
The piece you enter can be any size, from a small bedside cabinet up to a large wardrobe – the choice is yours! Simply decide on the piece you’d like to make, document the process, then submit it by following the entry details below.
There is a great range of prizes up for grabs, divided into first, second and third places:-
The prize for the overall winner will be a Hammer A3-26 planer/thicknesser fitted with Felder’s Silent-Power spiral cutterblock, which combine to achieve striking surface planing and thicknessing results. The spiral cutterblock reduces noise by more than half and ensures tear-free results while planing – a great combination for any workshop. This excellent prize includes delivery and commissioning and is worth over £3,000.
Second prize is the Fat 300 and Felder Worktop surface Multiplex – a machinery equipment vehicle that offers storage assistance, stacking cart or additional workspace. The Felder level lifting table is versatile and offers maximum stability and simple mobility at all times. With the solid frame moving on robust wheels, the easy-to-use foot pump hydraulics and the extremely durable working surface ensures that stability, manoeuvrability
and a comfortable working height are always guaranteed.
The third prize is £100 tooling credit, which can be spent on a wide range of tools and equipment across the Felder Group UK range.
To enter the competition, you must email a selection of step-by-step and process photos of your hand-made piece of furniture, which documents
its build from start to finish (no more than eight photos, please), along with
a short description of the piece and the processes used to make it (no more than 500 words, please).
