The finalists for Woodworking category showcase a variety of techniques, from traditional furniture-making to recycling skateboards.  One sculpture suggests a circus and another table is shaped like a giant bug. Several interesting backstories along the way, including the one that inspired the nautical tray table that Leo Litto made for his ailing father.
