 Have you ever walked through a quiet mountainside, inhaled cool, crisp air that’s tinged with the scent of approaching snow, and happened upon a rustic wood cabin? A handcrafted cabin nestled amongst pine trees looks magnificent.  

Readers who’ve embarked on their own wood projects know wood crafting is exhilarating. Imagine the satisfaction wood sawyers enjoy from using wood they’ve gathered themselves to build an original wood structure.  

Wood Project Many people have started and successfully finished wood projects they never thought they’d be capable of creating. Wood-Mizer, a company that sells quality sawmills and accessories, encourages wood sawyers to build the wood project of their dreams. One way Wood-Mizer helps wood workers get the recognition they deserve is through the company’s “Personal Best” contest.  

The contest highlights marvelous wood projects built by talented wood sawyers who’ve used Wood-Mizer products to realize their goals. The contest’s 12 winners are featured in the company’s 2010 calendar.   

Over the next few weeks, this blog will feature six of Wood-Mizer’s contest winners in hopes to inspire you to become creative and make something beautiful out of local lumber or salvaged wood. 



Here’s more information about the “Personal Best” contest:
