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.

This is a table project in the works. The Windsor Plywood store near Victoria, BC has been preparing a large piece of Red Oak for a customer. The table is made from live edge red oak and the underside has been finished with a coat of Minwax Poly.
The table measures 6 feet long by 4 feet wide.

The results are stunning and the store gets compliments about the countertops on a daily basis.
The ever talented Gellhaus Woodworks bought a beauty piece of Berlinia from Windsor Plywood Sherwood Park and wrapped it with a Wenge edge. Below was the picture gallery and information from the owner, Bart. For more fantastic pictures of furniture, be sure to check out Gellhaus Woodworks, the Instagram #gellhauswoodworks and Facebook page.
“The Folded Berlinia Table is made from solid Berlinia and trimmed with Wenge. This piece has a wealth of complex lines and angles. It provides a ton of interesting negative space and was intended to look like a single piece of wood that has been “simply” folded into shape. The two pieces of Berlinia that I used had nice bright sapwood on one side, so I joined the pieces with the sapwood in the middle to create a stripe that the viewer can follow around and throughout the whole piece. The tables measures:42″ x 22″ x 15 1/2″.
This piece is currently for sale in the “For Immediate Sale” area of the website. It has been signed and numbered personally by me.”
Windsor Plywood Cranbrook has claimed first prize in the Gingerbread House contest for the local Boys and Girls Club.
Owner Steve has donated the entire $500 prize back to the Boys and Girls Club charity.
An additional $140 was also raised at an auction for the actual gingerbread house. It measures 3 feet by 4 feet and is made from 3 gallons of icing, Baltic Birch plywood framing, gingerbread logs, real rocks, plenty of candy and required 10 hours of work.
It was a great chance to give back to the community and put some smiles on kids’ faces.
Windsor Plywood plans on being a sponsor at next year’s event and will also provide small gingerbread houses for children to assemble.
The contest garnered 30 entries, 40 gift baskets and 12 decorated trees which were sold at auction and silent bids. Over $7000 was raised and lots of fun was had!
