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.
The follow project was sent in from an employee at the Windsor Plywood Airdrie store. The author of this blog, contacted the owner, Ed and asked if the work in progress could be posted and shared on the mywindsorproject.com blog. This was Eds reply:
“I am flattered that you would consider this project for inclusion in the blog. It will be completed within the next couple of weeks. How ’bout I send you some final pics of the completed interior/exterior and some notes about the project when done.”
We replied saying that would be a bonus. Almost a month went by and we received another email with updated pictures of the finished project. Great job on your project Ed! We all appreciate the reply and the fantastic follow-up. Look forwards to more projects from your workshop Ed!
“Hello Attached are some pics of the finished project, the roll top desk. The wood used is all cedar, much of it purchased from Windsor. The folks in Windsor Plywood Airdrie were really helpful. I used cedar plywood, 3/4 inch and 1/4 inch, as well as dimensional cedar lumber planned to desired thicknesses. It is finished with Varathane clear satin, visible locations sprayed. I had not seen a roll-top made from cedar and thought that it would be unique. Now I need a new project!”
Kirby is the designer and builder of a massive 16′ x 34′ deck. That’s 544 square feet of deck!
Below for Kirby’s description of this project; We purchased Azek decking in two contrasting colours, and used the darker colour to provide the picture frame for the outer two rows of decking, and the lighter colour for the main decking. We are extremely impressed by the product…very resilient to pets, as well as sun fade.
Part of the structure of the deck is supported by (4) 6″ x 6″ Cedar posts 16 feet long, these posts extend through the decking providing the support for the south end of the two tiered pergola. The pergola is constructed using 2″ x 8″ Cedar boards, and all the connections are notched to provide better support. The north end of pergola was anchored to the house using extension brackets and cedar boards. We wanted to have an unobstructed view to the yard from inside the house, so we designed a glass rail system and 4″ x 4″ Cedar posts. The glass and posts are at a height of 60″ on sides and 40″ on front. The cedar posts were routered to fit the glass and than anchored to the deck framing.
The products supplied from Windsor Plywood were of top notch quality, and the in store service was friendly, and extremely helpful.
