Graham Kitchen Project

Maple cabinets in kitchenThe Windsor Plywood store in Coquitlam shared these pictures of a customer kitchen project.

All the wood in the kitchen was purchased from the local store and built by a customer. The wood used was domestic maple plywood and solid, surfaced four sides (s4s) maple stock.

The results are amazing!

Kyra’s Mahogany Bookshelf Project

The following story was shared from Kyra in Calgary, Alberta.

Built by the In-house carpenter at the Windsor Plywood Calgary south location to match the antique mahogany desk I refinished. The bookshelf is perfect and I was able to stain and lacquer it to match perfectly. It is a shame to put books on it as it is so beautiful!

Thank you Windsor Plywood! I’ll be back!!! So nice to get custom work done in exotic wood!!!Better than anything you can buy at a furniture store!!!! Thanks, Mahogany-bookshelf

Custom Cabinets by Sweet Relief Pastries

The following pictures were sent in the from the Windsor Plywood Calgary North store. Big thanks to the store owner, Deidre, for sending us more information about the project. (We were all quite speechless from staring at the desserts.) Check out the Calgary-based bakery website at www.sweetreliefpastries.com or the Facebook page.

We decided to go with shaker style cabinetry to keep things clean and modern but still beautiful to look at…we didn’t want it to look like regular cabinetry! The simple moulding around the edges helps to keep things warm and inviting, while not being too decorative that it takes away from our cakes and pastries. This was our first project, and through the skillful instruction and help of our friend and cabinetmaker Andy Vorra we were able to construct our very own custom cabinetry!

Marks Maple and Cherry Furniture Project

The following story and pictures were shared from Windsor Plywood Langley:


I thought I’d drop you a few pics of the stuff I’ve been building with your material.

1st is a really low quaility pic of the bookcases and fireplace mantle. All made of Maple and Maple plywood. These are the 1st pieces I made and I kinda wish I’d used Cherry.

After that, I started in on the living room. Everything is solid Cherry, no plywood (with the exception of the sides of the corner cabinet). It was a bit of a pain to plan the table tops, but they turned out OK.

Hope you enjoy the pics.

Ultimate Garage by Tim – My Windsor Project Contest Entry

My project was the finishing of my triple tandem garage. I wanted my finished product to look like a rustic cottage, incorporating wood and stone finishing.

Firstly, under the Doors category I’d like to submit all my handmade cabinets and lockers. All of which were made from 5/8” inch MDF with 1/2″ x1/2 “ inch Pine accents. I also would include all the handmade drawers which as you can see were all dovetailed.

Secondly, under the Moulding category, I’d like to draw your attention to the waffle ceiling, made with 1/2” MDF with 1×4 Spruce panels.

And finally, under the Woodworking Category I think the entire garage fits, but particularly the butcher block counter top, ledger under the pegboard, and all the walls, which are covered in 1×6 tongue and groove, cedar planks.

Cedar Roll Top Desk by Ed- My Windsor Project

The follow project was sent in from an employee at the Windsor Plywood Airdrie store. The author of this blog, contacted the owner, Ed and asked if the work in progress could be posted and shared on the mywindsorproject.com blog. This was Eds reply:

“I am flattered that you would consider this project for inclusion in the blog.  It will be completed within the next couple of weeks.  How ’bout I send you some final pics of the completed interior/exterior and some notes about the project when done.”

We replied saying that would be a bonus. Almost a month went by and we received another email with updated pictures of the finished project. Great job on your project Ed! We all appreciate the reply and the fantastic follow-up.
Look forwards to more projects from your workshop Ed!

“Hello
Attached are some pics of the finished project, the roll top desk.
The wood used is all cedar, much of it purchased from Windsor.  The folks in Windsor Plywood Airdrie were really helpful.  I used cedar plywood, 3/4 inch and 1/4 inch, as well as dimensional cedar lumber planned to desired thicknesses.  It is finished with Varathane clear satin, visible locations sprayed.
I had not seen a roll-top made from cedar and thought that it would be unique.
Now I need a new project!”
