Project Before & Afters of an interior barn door visible rail system install by C.C. Reno. Custom door and hardware purchased through Windsor Plywood Langley.
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.
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.
– 1/2″ MDF (window sill and jambs)
– White iron-on melamine edging (used on all built in melamine shelves)

For the Doors
– 2 x 24 inch hollow core interior door (slabs)

Solid core doors was used as entrance door to a music room. Solid core door was used to reduce noise. Hollow core doors were hung (by us!) as French doors on closet. French doors allow easy access to musical instruments. Moulding was used to trim out doors.
Margie and Bob from Langley, BC
Pictures attached are of a front door renovation completed during the summer of 2014.
The door, door moulding, door hardware, railings and decking/steps material (Pedra hardwood) were all purchased from Windsor Plywood, Langley. This DIY renovation was completed by the owners and they love the final results.
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.
