(Mustang, Oklahoma – May 28, 2019) – During Graduation on May 17, 2019, three Mustang High School Seniors found out via text message that their woodworking projects had been accepted into the North American Woodworking Contest which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 17-20, 2019.
The 2019 Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS) Fair will feature North America's largest gathering of woodworking equipment and technology, as well as the largest selection of hardware, tooling, components, power tools, manufacturing software, lumber, panel and construction material as well as an endless array of supplies for furniture, cabinet, millwork manufacturers and custom woodworking shops of all sizes.
This four day event also features student competitions. “This is an elite group,” said woodworking teacher Mike McGarry. “Only 20 total High School Projects from Canada and the USA were selected from over 250 entrees.” Of the 20, Mustang has earned 3: Vavek Patel for his vase, Kailen Weidner for his split dresser, and Zach Holt for his desk. This is Vavek’s second time as a finalist, according to McGarry. The student works will be on display during the show, and winners, as well as Best In Show, will be announced at a banquet on July 19, 2019.
