Entries are being accepted until July 7 for an Urbanwood Woodworker Showcase to celebrate the dedication of the Birge Urbanwood Center at the Recycle Ann Arbor’s (RAA) Reuse Cente, 2420 S. Industrial. Entries will compete for two “Best of Show” awards that in addition to bragging rights, includes gift certificates worth $500 in urban wood product merchandise from the Birge Urbanwood Center. The center was renamed in honor of Bill Birge, a long-time champion of urban wood utilization who recently retired from the RAA Board.
Woodworkers, hobbyists and artists are invited to enter the showcase. Submitted furniture and artistic objects must be made from at least 50% reclaimed or salvaged wood.
Questions can be directed to Jessica Simons at firstname.lastname@example.org.
