Don’s Zapatero Bar Top and Oak Coffee Table

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!

Harry’s Table Made from Bush Woods

The following project was shared by a fan of the www.mywindsorproject.com blog. Send in your projects to share today!

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.

My wife loves it, so it was off the Windsor today in Cranbrook for something really nice to build a bookcase. We got a great deal on some purpleheart, so I guess its back to the shed ASAP.

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.

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!
