It is time to think outside and inside the box for the Box Contest! Whether your specialty is making boxes or making things out of them, this is the contest for you. Don’t let traditional boxes set your course, explore your options, look from every angle, and see what emerges beneath your fingers.

Boxes, boxes, and more boxes; stack ‘em, make ‘em, combine ‘em. Do whatever it is you do best and you could win a Dewalt miter saw, router, rotary kit, and more.

The Box Contest 2017 is closed.
