According to Olde World Stone and Tile Molds, Inc. President John Panagos, "we conceived of this contest to illustrate how a typical homeowner could make their own concrete stone, pavers, tile and brick veneer products right at home, saving 90% of the retail cost by doing it themselves. I must admit that even after 24 years in business, I was surprised at the professional results most of our customers' projects exhibited. When you consider that most customers had never worked with concrete or molds before, their project results were amazing. We are so proud to showcase these examples of do-it-yourself craftsmanship and ingenuity on our websites."
Panagos then added, "Congratulations to our talented contest winners in each category. And many thanks for the strong participation by the many customers who entered the contest, and the general public who voted in it."
The company is currently planning their 2016 Customer Project Contest, and is in the process of setting up that website. Contest announcements will be made on their websites and through their monthly newsletter when the contest opens. Photo entries into the 2016 contest can be submitted to the company's Contest@oldeworld.com email address.
