Create a new Step By Step, Photo, or Video Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the right-hand column. Instructables must be published between Apr 2, 2012 and Jun 4, 2012 (11:59pm PT) to be eligible.


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Woodworking Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contest plus 3 days after the contest closes.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be announced here on the contest page. All entrants will be notified when this happens.

Woodworking Challenge




days left



There were so many amazing entries in the Furniture Challenge that we’ve decided to launch a Woodworking Challenge with even more possibilities for entry and even more prizes to win!

Enter any Step by Step, Photo, or Video Instructable that involves wood and you could be eligible to win a Bosch Table Saw, Milwaulkee 18V Lithium Ion Drill and Driver Kit, Bosch Router Kit, Leatherman Wave, and more! If you’ve been looking for an excuse to make something out of wood this weekend, this is it since anything made with, or involving wood is eligible. 

Don’t have a project idea but have a lot of woodworking knowledge that you’d like to share with the world? No problem! A special judges prize will be awarded to the author of the best Instructable that explains any woodworking skill clearly. Simply use your own photos in the Instructable, give it a clear title that people will easily be able to find like “Cutting Perfect Miter Joints” and enter it in the contest.

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, Netherlands, and Australia. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, June 4, 2012.
