Sherwood Park’s Pecky Cedar Barn Door Project

Colin’s crew from the Windsor Plywood Sherwood Park store under took a big project. They created a custom-made barn door from Pecky Cedar lumber. The materials required for the project was: 2″ x 8″ Pecky Cedar planks, G-Tape, Titebond glue, Ecopoxy metallics, 8 litres of resin, wooden dominos, a Festool Domino Joiner and many hours, the project was completed for the customer.

What is Pecky Wood?
Pecky wood features areas or pockets of softer or decaying wood, often caused by natural fungus usually found in older trees.  This natural process can greatly enhance the visual appeal of the wood. A similar process, spalted wood, refers to very unique surface discolouration that is also very highly desired by high-end furniture makers. For decorative projects, woodworkers will clean out the voids and use fillers or ecopoxy products, then sand and stain or re-seal the surface

The following email was shared from West at Windsor Plywood Nanaimo.

Here are pictures of the bar top I made from the Zapatero wood I purchased from Windsor Plywood in January 2018. I also included a picture of the coffee table I made from the live edge oak I also bought from you.

Both pieces of wood are beautiful, and came out really well.

Thanks again.

Jonnys Handcrafted Live Edge Aspen Table

A customer project shared from the Windsor Plywood Edmonton West Facebook page.

Jonny handcrafted the table from a large slab of Aspen live edge. Aspen is a light-weight wood that features a sought after straight grain. Aspen is also a good substitute for the more expensive and in short supply, Walnut. Great Job!
