Plywood is strong, stable, and low in cost. No wonder so many people build with it! We’re giving this humble but sturdy material its moment in the sun with the Plywood Contest.
Enter projects that use plywood in some way for a chance to win a router, benchtop router table, circular saw, and more excellent prizes. All finalists will receive an Instructables prize pack, including a much-coveted Instructables T-shirt.
Don’t forget to take clear photos, write easy to follow instructions, and most importantly, have fun!

How It Works

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Jan 18, 2016 and Feb 29, 2016 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Plywood Contest. 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.


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 notified and announced here on the contest page.
