Rustic Barn Door Table Project

Custom bar wood vanity made out of Zator's barn door fir ,finished off with vinager and steel wool mix ,320 dollars cost ,2100 sell 6 hours of workThe crew at the Windsor Plywood Cranbrook store were it again. This time it was repurposing a rustic barn and using all the parts to make a table. Additional pieces of wood were cut for the legs and cross supports. The next step was to “age” the surface of the wood with the combination of vinegar, steel wool and tea. Click here to learn more about this process.
The table measures 52 inches long, 42 inches wide by 39 inches tall.
It took the staff 2 days to complete the project from start to finish. Looks great!

Margie’s Fir Adirondack Chair Project

Margies-Fir-Adirondack-Chair600The following was an email sent in by Margie:
“Picture of an Adirondack chair made by my husband (painted by myself!) with fir purchased from Windsor Plywood in Langley.”

Our reply: “Hello Margie
Thank you for sending in the picture of the Adirondack chair. It looks like a fantastic project and the painting was very professional.
Question: Is this the same Margie that was the door winner for the My Windsor Project contest? Would love to see a picture of Adirondack chair in front of the new door.
I will submit the picture to the blog for July 27th posting. Thank you Woody Wall, Blog Editor”

The next day, we received this email:
“Here are some pictures of the chair with the front of the house.  front-of-house-with-chairs-600I usually have it under the Maple tree beside the turquoise bench (that way when we sit outside, we get shade).  I do intend to make a second chair for the other side of the bench and likely will paint it the same colour.
Thanks for the painting compliment.  I do all the painting and no, I am not a professional—just lots of practice and I enjoy doing it.

We’ve had tons of compliments about the door and the Pedra decking.  Thanks.

BTW—the cedar posts will be stained black Front-of-house-with-Chair-and-Bench-320 front-of-house-with-red-Adirondack-chair-320later this summer—they had to weather for a year first.  Plus I’m hoping for less heat.  And, if you look closely those are indeed hockey sticks sticking out of the cream can by the door.  My son plays hockey—I figured if they had to be kept on the porch by the door, they might as well look good being there.  I’m waiting for an epiphany about the newspaper recycle and then that will change!

When I’m done all that, I’ll likely be back at Windsor bugging Brad about the next project!”

 

Hobbit House by Arnie – My Windsor Project Contest Entry

My husband spent his summer building this hobbit house for our son. I was afraid at first as it started to take over our backyard, I thought he was in over his head…but he build this beautiful structure that my son and his friends love to play in. We have had many visits from all our neighbours wondering why there is grass hanging over the top of our fence and why there is a chimney stack sticking up from the mound of grass! We have even been told our neighbours have seen people hanging over the fence trying to take pictures of our hobbit house! Hope you enjoy 🙂
