Everyone who works at West Wind has formed a close relationship with wood. Most are passionate and take advantage of any opportunity to use and/or work with it. Our Flooring Manger, Joel is no different. In fact he set the bar for everyone else. He’s been with us since 1998; still in high school at the time and highly recommended by his Wood Work Teacher. He has spent his entire post-secondary career working towards improving and upgrading his living environment; a few times over.
Here are some pictures of the porch he installed on his current home renovation. Great job! What’s next?
Is it time to scrub down the bar-b-que and turn your thoughts to warm weather activities? Well at least on the West Coast it is 🙂 Check out Volume 12 – August 2007 – for our Smokin’ Hot Article on wondrous wood flavours. Jan’s personal favourite – Alder. He says “It’s just plain sweet”.
WOW Your Guests!
Don’t forget our BBQ grilling planks. They are available in four sizes in three species: Western Red Cedar, Western Maple and Alder. Weather not co-operating? Bring the outdoor party in. They can easily be used in your kitchen oven as well.
Know a woodworker and stumped at what to get them for their birthday, anniversary, or maybe Valentine’s? Why not a gift certificate from West Wind? Any amount will do, and we’ve got the great quality fine woods they already love. Hey, you may even get a nice new piece of furniture out of it.
If you’re the woodworker hoping for a gift, then drop those hints to your loved ones. There’s endless possibilities of what you can do with a West Wind Gift Certificate!
West Wind would like to find a new home for this real gem of a boat. Built at Silva Bay Boat School in 2004. It has lots of figured wood and brightwork. Non-dipping lug – Sitka spruce spar. Includes a trailer!
The crew at West Wind had another great giving opportunity by Mrs. Clarke’s Grade 7 Class.
It is the the 2nd year we have donated to this cause brought on by the class at Dunsmuir Middle School. The fund raising campaign is to raise money for Gifts of Hope through Plan Canada. The students have been reading, writing, connecting, and researching issues in order to ignite some global change! They have set goals to purchase pigs, goats, mosquito nets, medicine, school supplies etc in developing countries.
The class has set up a Giving Page through Canadahelps.org so the students can follow along with their progress. In past years they have raised anywhere from $1500 to$3000.
