Marc’s Edgy Drawer Project

The following was a submission from Marc D to the projects@windsorplywood.com

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.

New Custom Countertops for Windsor Plywood Store

The manager from Windsor Plywood Bellingham, decided it was time to take out the old countertops and make more room for their customers.

His hard-working staff put in some extra hours and tore out the old counter. It was quite a chore. Lots of hours of a sled hammer and crowbar, the counter finally came apart.

The new countertops feature “wings” where a computer was installed and the staff can still interact with customers. The countertop was made from glued laminated timber, or glulam. Two coats of Ecopoxy, one coat to seal, and a second as a top coat. The new countertops were then sanded lightly at 500 grit and buffed it out to help flatten the sheen.

The results are stunning and the store gets compliments about the countertops on a daily basis.

Maple Table Top with Cherry Inlays

The Windsor Plywood Cranbrook store was working on another project in the wood shop. This time it maple plank table with cherry inlays. The table is 38″ wide by 96″ long. It’s crafted from 2″ thick by 4″ to 6″ wide planks of maple.
What a fantastic project to take on!

Some of the tools used:
Festool OF 1010 EQ Plunge Router
Festool Guide Rail FS FS 2700/2
Festool Multi-Mode Sander RO 150 FEQ-Plus
Big thanks to the team for stopping and taking pictures of the process.
Look forwards to more projects in the future.

Custom Rocking Chair by Alistair

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!!

Bob and the Wooden Dragon – Customer Project

Bob is a customer of Windsor Plywood Kamloops. Bob loves to make unusual and intricate wood projects like this incredible intarsia dragon he made as a surprise for his son.

All the wood is the natural colour of wood with no stains used. The green is Amarillo poplar, Red is Padauk, Brown striped is Wenge, wings are Lacewood Maple. Tagua nuts were used for the teeth and fangs.

The piece was finished off with high-gloss laquer to bring out the richness of the wood grain and enhance the depth.

It is one incredible piece of work. Awesome job Bob!

Custom-Made Storage Cedar Shed – Employee Project

cedar shedWindsor 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!

Folded Berlinia Table by Gellhaus Woodworks

The ever talented Gellhaus Woodworks bought a beauty piece of Berlinia from Windsor Plywood Sherwood Park and wrapped it with a Wenge edge. Below was the picture gallery and information from the owner, Bart. For more fantastic pictures of furniture, be sure to check out Gellhaus Woodworks, the Instagram #gellhauswoodworks and Facebook page.

“The Folded Berlinia Table is made from solid Berlinia and trimmed with Wenge. This piece has a wealth of complex lines and angles. It provides a ton of interesting negative space and was intended to look like a single piece of wood that has been “simply” folded into shape. The two pieces of Berlinia that I used had nice bright sapwood on one side, so I joined the pieces with the sapwood in the middle to create a stripe that the viewer can follow around and throughout the whole piece. The tables measures:42″ x 22″ x 15 1/2″.
This piece is currently for sale in the “For Immediate Sale” area of the website. It has been signed and numbered personally by me.”

Wagons Ho!

These chuck wagons were made for the Sam Steele Parade. The Windsor Plywood store in Cranbrook donated 6000 feet of veneer to make the wheels for the wagons. They were used for chuck wagon races.
The races were composed of 4 people pulling, one driver and 2 outriders on bikes. It was a blast to participate in and a real chuckle to watch.
In total, 10 of these small wagons were made for the community event.
All donations went go towards building houses for low-income families in the Kootenays area.
