April 30, 2015 – Exploring BC’s Millwork Industry: Beyond the Basics
Seminars, Demo’s and Factory Tour for the Vancouver Island Chapter of Architects
Partnered with Roy Manion, Manager, Specifiers Program of the BC Wood Specialties Group
Hosted by West Wind Hardwood Inc
Driven by Joel Radford and Shelley Nielsen
Attended by 25 Architects and Designers from Southern Vancouver Island
This was both a challenge and a hoot for us. We’d never considered offering an on-site learning opportunity until Roy approached us. He nurtured us; coddled us; encouraged us. And it was a success, as born witness by this excerpt from the Vancouver Island Chapter of Architects’ Newsletter………
35 Engraved Cherry Serving Paddle Boards
for Kitchen76, Two Sisters Winery, Niagara on the Lake, Ont.
I just wanted to send you a note with regards to the boards for Kitchen76… they are amazing! Everyone loved them and they are just want we wanted
The detail of the emblem and the board itself is amazing!

Our second time going to this show and exhibiting our products (flooring, decking and milling more prominently). We had a great attendance, maybe it was the great weather? But overall we were pretty pleased!
Jan and Joel showed of our new booth display that was milled and constructed in-house. Check it out:
