Four Wooden Crate Coffee Table by Gerry – Customer Projects

This coffee table was inspired by a picture of one made of four wooden crates. The top is wide strips of solid cherry and narrow strips of Peruvian walnut with edging of the same. The strips are glued together using biscuits, the top was made in four pieces then joined together with glue and biscuits, then the edging was added. The body is 3/4″ cherry plywood faced with strips of cherry. Finished with 6 coats of Minwax Tung Oil Finish.

The center area of the top has an adjustable shelf (covered with rocks in the picture, could hold a vase with plants if the shelf is put lower) and will eventually have a optional walnut piece that will be flush with the top.

This probably took 80 hours to make, used table saw, jointer, thickness planer, router, biscuit joiner, random orbital sander.


Marks Maple and Cherry Furniture Project

The following story and pictures were shared from Windsor Plywood Langley:

I thought I’d drop you a few pics of the stuff I’ve been building with your material.

1st is a really low quaility pic of the bookcases and fireplace mantle. All made of Maple and Maple plywood. These are the 1st pieces I made and I kinda wish I’d used Cherry.

After that, I started in on the living room. Everything is solid Cherry, no plywood (with the exception of the sides of the corner cabinet). It was a bit of a pain to plan the table tops, but they turned out OK.

Hope you enjoy the pics.
