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.

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!
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.”
