This month we are showcasing the work of Ron David who did the interior woodwork of a 1927 Cadillac and our customer David who used our Oli-Natura finishes on the floor of his Sun Peaks cabin.
Ron David says this about his project:
I just finished a job I was given to do on some of the interior woodwork of a 1927 Caddie. 1st was the dash instrument panel that was missing most of its walnut veneer and he couldn’t find anyone to do it, so I got the challenge. The 1st pic is of the bare nickel plated insert and the next 2 completed.
This next piece came in 3 pieces and was totally missing the burl veneer inside the stringing and missing a backing piece of 1/16″ veneer.
Repaired it all, put in the burl veneer and applied all new stringing.
Give this issue’s customers and their creations some welcomed “kudos” by sharing your comments with us below.
We got a plethora of submissions from customers showing of their work since early June. We threw in a couple of milling jobs we had done as well. Enjoy

Our customer, Janet, tells us about her beautifully finished kitchen in her own words:
I used Aniline water based stain on the Eastern Maple, mixing equal parts of golden oak and honey amber then slightly less of russet amber to get a hint of red. I had much more success in getting even colouring on both the maple plywood and the solid.
We did a shaker style door and I used a Kreg pocket hole jig to assemble the doors. Not probably as strong as woodworkers joints but they were strong enough for the purpose.
The project was a long one (one year) but well worth it.
