This is my first real wood project. Been a metal guy all my life, so after retiring, I thought I would try some wood. I made a simple table for my wife, from local woods; juniper, fir, and pine all found in the local bush. I used my 30-year-old Beaver Tablesaw, I got on Kijiji for $80, and Jointer I got from the Goodwill for $40. I sanded for several days, then gave it a coat of Minwax clear.

The following was a submission from Marc D to the firstname.lastname@example.org
Marc’s wife wanted a small table with drawers for the front entrance to put keys, gloves, etc. He scoured the internet for an idea and came up with this design; the carcass is made of birch ply, the drawer fronts include canary wood, purple heart and birch.Marc has a small shop (single bay garage) and it took about 40 hours to build.”
Fantastic work Marc! Great choice in the woods and drawer pull hardware.

Hi my name is Alistair, I live in Calgary AB.
Below is a rocking Chair I built from a variety of wood, it is made from walnut, cherry, ash, poplar and spruce most of which was purchased from the south location Windsor Plywood in Calgary.
The chair is 43 ply’s glued up and then carved with chainsaw, angle grinder and chisels then sanded with an orbital sander down to hand sanding to a 400 grit. The finish is a pre-catalysed lacquer that has been sanded between coats and polished.
It was a super fun project and I look forward to making more of these, thanks for all your great products Windsor Plywood!!

Windsor Plywood Calgary employee Brian, built a custom-made cedar storage shed. This style of shed sits on the side of a house.
The shed was created to fit specific landscaping tools and his trusty lawn cutting equipment. The doors open wide and can also be removed for more access.
Brain chose western red cedar for the appearance, ease to work with and naturally resistant from rot.
Nice job Brian!
