some other important stuff


There is nothing more cliché than a Cabin in the Woods rendering challenge, which is exactly why we decided to make fun of it instead. Show us your best interpretation of a Cabinet in the Woods. Make us laugh. Make us cry. Make us delete your image in 11th place because your cabinet was more of a chest of drawers. 

Extra credit will be given for cabinets with a lot of storage space.


Is there a cabinet? Are there woods? Is the cabinet in the woods? If your answers to all of these questions are “yes”, then you are good to go.


Do not forget to join our D2 Community Facebook Group to share your challenge related work with the rest of community prior to the live judging. 

If you have any problems or questions, please email us.

The winner will be chosen by Fabio, Jason, and other invited jurors during a live stream deliberation on April 1, 2022, at 18:00 CET (UTC+1).
