The follow story and pictures were sent in from Earl
I’ve been woodworking since I retired from BC Hydro in Nanaimo. Always get my lumber from Windsor Plywood in Nanaimo. I get my plans from Toys and Joys in Lynden Washington.
Excavating vehicles and logging trucks are in high demand. Each project takes about 2 weeks to complete, 5 hours per working day.
Right now I’m make 4 logging trucks on special order.
Hope this helps.
The store owner from the Windsor Plywood Cranbrook sent a few pictures to share with visitors.
As we are now living in our cabin as a year round home our plan was to make the kitchen bigger and make room for a proper water filtering system. We started by enclosing our existing 12’ x 14’ covered overhang. We also moved the dining room wall 4’ to the west. This meant rearranging the existing bathroom and by doing so we converted an existing bedroom into an ensuite and mechanical room. WE are only days away from having everything done (has been a long 4 months). Part of the problem was the original cabin is 50 years old, it has a 30-year-old addition and we are using modern building techniques. The doors are from Windsor Plywood and are made from Brazilian Plantation pine. The cedar beams and all of the pine trim and baseboards are also from Windsor Plywood. We are very pleased with the results and have received a number of compliments.

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.
