Made in the South Awards 2012
Since winning the first ever Made in the South Awards back in 2010, we like to keep an eye out for the latest winners. Garden & Gun magazine launched this annual awards program in 2010 as a way of tipping their hat and spreading the news about folks whose work epitomizes southern craftsmanship and ingenuity.
The winners have just been announced for 2012 and it is a stellar line-up.
Congratulations to all the winners!
Made in the South Awards 2012 … and the winner is …
Lookout Mountain Rocker
“In an age of particle board, Wood Studio’s Lookout Mountain Rocker stands as a testament to craftsmanship and solid wood. “We’re not fancy people,” says builder Keith Cochran. “I don’t need it to be real curly or carved; I just need it to be nice and tight and smooth.” And perfect: Keith and his brother, Dylan, lavish eighty hours on each of their signature pieces, working without computer-controlled tools or hired help in their Arley, Alabama, shop near the remote gorges and waterfalls of the William B. Bankhead National Forest.” excerpt from Garden and Gun.
