New product design category boosts woodworking awards

Published:  16 May, 2016

Joinery manufacturers, timber door, window and interiors companies and woodworking experts across the UK are being encouraged to seek recognition through this year’s British Woodworking Federation (BWF) Awards.

Entry to the awards is free and open to all, including non-members of the BWF, as long as they are from the joinery and woodworking sector. The new Product Design in Wood category has been launched in 2016 to recognise excellence in technical innovation, application and innovation in joinery product manufacture and design.

This category joins the Woodworking Project of the Year category, which recognises the very best in design, application or ability in joinery manufacture, and innovation in joinery projects. This award is given every year in memory of John Hedgecock, former technical director at the BWF.

Last year’s BWF Awards winners included Houghtons of York, AJB Woodworking, DJ Newman Joinery, West Oak Joinery and Beard Evans Joinery.
