Some of you here may already know about it, but the Woodturners America site is having a Beauty and the Beast contest to celebrate their first anniversary. The basic idea is that you submit photos of two pieces...a Beauty and a Beast (open to wide interpretation). The list of prizes is very impressive. If you're interested, go to their Contest Page and check things out. You have to be a member to enter the contest, but registration is quick, easy, and painless. The contest needs more participants.
