Entries will be evaluated based on the overall look and presentation of the project as well as the most effective and innovative use of screw pocket joinery. The use of Castle machinery or products is not required.

Winning prizes include the Castle 110 Pocket Cutter, a TSM-12 Pocket Cutting Machine, or the foot-pedal operated, TSM-22 Pocket Cutter. Contest prizes have MSRPs ranging from $659.99 to $4,899.00. The use of Castle machinery or products is not required.

Contestants will compete in three categories: Individual Student, High School Program/Class, and Secondary or Vo-tech Program/Class.

“We are thrilled to announce our judging panel – each of these guys is so highly respected, not just as editors or publishers, but as highly skilled, expert woodworkers,” says Mathias Forsman, CEO. “Working with such a distinguished panel of judges will help us encourage student woodworkers and provide an incentive for students and educators to learn more about pocket joinery, whether they use our machines or not.”
