Make a project that includes plywood. Build something small and simple, or large and complex; if it includes the use of plywood, it's eligible!

Projects must include actual plywood. Other manufactured sheet goods such as particle board, OSB, or MDF (this article outlines the differences) may be used in addition - but these materials alone will not meet the contest requirement.

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 Aug 29, 2022 and Oct 24, 2022 (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.
