On Sept. 28, the finest wood craftspeople in Vermont exhibited their design entries in the Vermont Woodworking Design Competition at the 10th annual VT Fine Furniture & Woodworking Festival. The first place prize for carvings and sculpture went to Shelburne resident Ted Fink of TJF Turnings LLC for his “Natural-edge Oak Burl Bowl.” Pieces were judged based upon the quality of the craftsmanship and the innovativeness of the design. The Competition is open only to those pieces that are designed and made in Vermont, by Vermont woodworkers and students.
