Don’s Zapatero Bar Top and Oak Coffee Table

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.

Thanks again.

Brett’s Live Edge Maple Table Project

A project shared from Windsor Plywood head office. It was created by an employees husband, Brett, and given to their daughter as a Christmas present. It was Brett’s first live edge table and definitely won’t be his last. Excellent work!

Wood- Maple Slab debarked
Bottom Glass- 1/4″ Tinted Blue
Stain- Danish oil (light walnut)
Crack & knot hole filler- metallic blue mica powder mixed with Ecopoxy
Legs- metal tubular 18″ x 24″
Finish- Ecopoxy
Lighting- (4) LED remote control lights under the slab

Made a template of the middle line edge, had the glass cut and then traced out the glass onto the wood. It was then routered and the glass set into the recess. The top of the glass was backfilled with 3/8″ of ecopoxy.

New Custom Countertops for Windsor Plywood Store

The manager from Windsor Plywood Bellingham, decided it was time to take out the old countertops and make more room for their customers.

His hard-working staff put in some extra hours and tore out the old counter. It was quite a chore. Lots of hours of a sled hammer and crowbar, the counter finally came apart.

The new countertops feature “wings” where a computer was installed and the staff can still interact with customers. The countertop was made from glued laminated timber, or glulam. Two coats of Ecopoxy, one coat to seal, and a second as a top coat. The new countertops were then sanded lightly at 500 grit and buffed it out to help flatten the sheen.

The results are stunning and the store gets compliments about the countertops on a daily basis.

Maple Table Top with Cherry Inlays

The Windsor Plywood Cranbrook store was working on another project in the wood shop. This time it maple plank table with cherry inlays. The table is 38″ wide by 96″ long. It’s crafted from 2″ thick by 4″ to 6″ wide planks of maple.
What a fantastic project to take on!

Some of the tools used:
Festool OF 1010 EQ Plunge Router
Festool Guide Rail FS FS 2700/2
Festool Multi-Mode Sander RO 150 FEQ-Plus
Big thanks to the team for stopping and taking pictures of the process.
Look forwards to more projects in the future.

Folded Berlinia Table by Gellhaus Woodworks

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.”

img_0110Windsor 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!
