Medina, Minn. (PRWEB) January 28, 2010
Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has announced that it is sponsoring a furniture design contest for fine furniture lovers, the http://custommade.com/DesignChallenge. Using Google® SketchUp (or other 3D modeling software), entrants are invited to submit their design for a piece of furniture that illustrates what they’ve been looking for but have been unable to find in the marketplace. The winner will work with one of CustomMade's talented woodworkers to have their piece custom made for them. Entries are due by February 12, 2010 and the winner will be announced February 26, 2010.
“We’re sponsoring the CustomMade Design Challenge because we want fine furniture lovers to know about the rich resources available to them on the CustomMade site," explains Scott Ekman, vice president of marketing at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware. “CustomMade can provide consumers with everything they need in terms of custom-made furniture, cabinets and other wood crafts." Ekman ends with, “Anyone who's ever wanted something specific in terms of furniture but which they can't seem to find anywhere in the retail furniture world, can easily source artisans and craftsmen for a made-to-order solution on CustomMade."
Rockler, a premier supplier of specialty hardware, tools, lumber and high-quality woodworking products, recently announced a strategic alliance with CustomMade Ventures, an established online resource and marketplace connecting woodworkers with buyers of custom-built wood furniture, cabinets and woodcrafts. This partnership (details at http://www.Rockler.com/CustomMade) aims to dramatically boost interest and sales in custom-made wood products and support small business growth.
