California and Kentucky resin artists won the top prizes in Woodcraft’s “Pour to Win” Contest.

David Ison won the Vote Award for his “Black Walnut Coffee Table,” right, and Max Shen won the Woodcraft Judges Award for his “Coastline Telecaster Guitar.”

We are very pleased with the response to Woodcraft’s ‘Pour to Win’ Contest – 530 entries.

Max Shen imagined a guitar. David Ison envisoned a coffee table. Both resin-enhanced pieces earned $250 Woodcraft Gift Cards for their makers in the Woodcraft “Pour to Win” Contest in March.

“We are very pleased with the response to Woodcraft’s ‘Pour to Win’ Contest – 530 entries,” President and CEO Jack Bigger said. “It confirmed the growing interest among makers to create with resins. Congratulations to the five winners and a big thank-you to all the entrants for participating.”

Judges selected Shen, from Redwood, California, as the Woodcraft Judges Award winner for his “Coastline Telecaster Guitar” that features pearlescent resin inlays, a California Ash burl body, walnut neck and rosewood fretboard. Viewers picked Ison, from Catlettsburg, Kentucky, as the Vote Award winner for his “Black Walnut Coffee Table” made from a walnut slab spit in two pieces and filled in with a resin pour.

The three runners-up chosen by the judges are George Partal of Bangor, Maine, “Magical Pearl Vase;” Tim Terras of Spring Creek, Nevada, “A Nest of Dragon Eggs;” and Chris Yacoub, no address available, “Knife.”

Shen and Ison will each receive a $250 Woodcraft Gift Card. All five winners will receive a Woodcraft Prize Pack that includes a Woodcraft T-Shirt, a Woodcraft Enamel Mug, a Woodcraft Sticker, and a Woodcraft Beanie.
