Winners named in CMA Wood Diamond
design awards competition
Companies were recognized in more than 20 categories.
Winners of the 2019 Wood Diamond Awards contest have been an- nounced by the Cabinet
Makers Association. The annual design
competition promotes professional development and encourages peer recognition of outstanding workmanship in a
variety of categories.
The 2019 award winners were announced on Thursday, July 18, during
the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas. First place
winners were awarded a customized
plaque in their respective category.
“The Wood Diamond Awards program
is an exceptional opportunity to recognize
the unique talents of its members,” said
CMA member Ken Kumph of Premier
Builders, Georgetown, Massachusetts.
“This year’s competition was extremely
competitive, particularly in the frameless
kitchen category, which had 28 entries,”
said CMA Executive Director Amanda
Conger. The high percentage of frameless
cabinet construction entries is consistent
with overall industry trends, she added.
The variety of submissions within the
residential category also confirms that
cabinetry continues to extend to every
room in the home, Conger said. Interestingly, although the vast majority of submissions (90 percent) were residential, the
overall winner was a commercial project.
