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.

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.

Music and Craft Room Project by Selena – My Windsor Project Contest Entry

An room in our unfinished basement was finished to create a music/craft room.

Custom built-in shelves and curved desk were made out of 3/4″ melamine and trimmed with white iron-on melamine edging. A Kregg shelf pin jig was used to create custom shelf heights. The built-in shelving unit was trimmed with MDF mouldings – baseboard #514 for the two vertical pieces for the centre shelving section, S4S #MFSP105 & sash bead #9532 were used to create the custom header for the built-in shelves. Built-in shelf backer board was made out of particle/MDF board and painted a contrasting colour for a pop of colour.

The S4S #MFSP105 & sash bead #9532 mouldings were used to trim out the top of the doors (French & solid core).

1/2″ MDF was used to make a custom window sill and jambs for the window. The S4S #MFSP105 & sash bead #9532 mouldings were also used to trim out the top of the window.

Laundry Room Makeover

4This project was submitted by Angelo to the 2008 Great Canadian Contest
Well, it was time for the old laundry room to make way for a whole new look.

Thanks to the wide choice of Windsor plywoods, veneers and mouldings (not to mention some nifty tiling work), I was able to transform my laundry room into something worth getting dirty for!

Using plywood and 2×4 I raised the floor about 4.5″ to create a custom-built pedestal for the washer/dryer. I then decided to add some more countertop workspace by again framing with 2×4 and plywood for a custom-built tumbled marble countertop.

The floor was tiled with granite and natural stone and a mosaic was framed in the center by the stone. The walls were troweled on and hand-polished with a “Venetian Plaster” (shiny marble-looking plaster) then stenciled with a leaf pattern in gold paint.

Wood veneers and mouldings were added to the cabinetry and door to add even more decorative elements. There’s also a pull-out ironing board center (not shown in photos) which was veneered/stained to match cabinetry.

Don’t forget to enter the My Windsor Project Contest. Entries must be received by email or mail by September 30th, 2014. Click here for more information.
