Dave’s Custom-made Cribbage and Cheese boards – Customer Projects

These creative boards are made by Dave Smith from D.W. Smith Woodworking. He began woodworking as a teenager, mimicking his father who was very handy in his workshop. Now, Dave works out of his home in Cloverdale, BC.  Though he currently creates smaller items, in past Dave has crafted items such as furniture, done home improvements, and worked on a variety of other projects! And for those of you who love a good puzzle, Dave has even started working on making 3D wooden puzzles!
Dave’s product line includes cribbage boards, cheese and serving boards, sushi boards. He also takes on custom orders like wooden heat register grilles (in a variety of woods) and with original hole pattern designs.
Dave can be found on Etsy and Facebook.

Woodworking Winner of the My Windsor Project Contest

Congratulations to:
Dennis of Armstrong, BC 

This highly detailed wooden bowl was turned by Dennis, a customer of Windsor Plywood Vernon store. The bowl is 14″ tall with main body made from Aspen with a ring of Blue Alowood. Inlay on the neck is Bubinga, Purpleheart and Blue Alowood.

Dennis resides with his family in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in the interior of British Columbia. Shortly after retiring from a career as a Boilermaker Superintendent, Dennis decided to more actively pursue one of his many artistic hobbies, woodworking.  Soon afterwards, a neighbour introduced him to the art of turning bowls on a wood lathe.  Well a passion soon arose.  From simple solid piece bowls Dennis quickly moved on to designing more complex segmented bowls that allowed more of his artistic side to come through.

Each and every bowl is a one-of-a-kind original creation.  Using a variety of the abundant local woods and some exotic woods blended together Dennis creates bowls with unique forms and colour matches.

Dennis Hassen 008When an interesting piece of wood presents itself, Dennis also turns solid piece bowls, trying best to exploit the natural grain and colour of the wood into an eye pleasing shape.

Once again, congratulations to Dennis and his fantastic project!
