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.

Harry’s Table Made from Bush Woods

The following project was shared by a fan of the www.mywindsorproject.com blog. Send in your projects to share today!

This is my first real wood project. Been a metal guy all my life, so after retiring, I thought I would try some wood. I made a simple table for my wife, from local woods; juniper, fir, and pine all found in the local bush. I used my 30-year-old Beaver Tablesaw, I got on Kijiji for $80, and Jointer I got from the Goodwill for $40. I sanded for several days, then gave it a coat of Minwax clear.

My wife loves it, so it was off the Windsor today in Cranbrook for something really nice to build a bookcase. We got a great deal on some purpleheart, so I guess its back to the shed ASAP.

Marc’s Edgy Drawer Project

The following was a submission from Marc D to the projects@windsorplywood.com

Marc’s wife wanted a small table with drawers for the front entrance to put keys, gloves,  etc. He scoured the internet for an idea and came up with this design; the carcass is made of birch ply, the drawer fronts include canary wood, purple heart and birch.Marc has a small shop (single bay garage) and it took about 40 hours to build.”

Fantastic work Marc! Great choice in the woods and drawer pull hardware.

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.
