A Coffee Table and Side Tables

A Coffee Table and Side Tables

by Bill Howard

From a local customer Bill Howard.  This is a fabulous critique on the background tech side of an at-home project…..in his words.


The primary wood is American Cherry. The secondary wood is Yellow Poplar.

The style is Shaker.  The case joinery is all mortise and tenon; frame and panel.  The design is my own.  My wife, Jennifer, wanted me to make these for our family room.

VOL. 59 – Customer Projects

The Scouts have finally finished the boats we started nearly two years ago and wanted to get these photos of the boys taking them out on Beaver Lake earlier this month.  It was a perfect evening to go out and the boys really enjoyed themselves.  The sense of pride in their faces knowing that they build something that actually floated was great to see.

I would like to thank you again on behalf of the 3rd Douglas Scout Group for your generous donation of material to make this project happen.

Thanks

Oli-Natura Best-Seller in May

Oli-Natura Best-Seller in May

Logo-OLI-NATURA-2This past May we were pleasantly surprised with an unexpected run on our HS Hard Wax Oil; all headed to Pennsylvania.  I’m talking almost 100 Litres!!  This was a special job for special people at the Camphill Special School in Glenmore, PA.

Multiple Contractors plus Direct Shipments from Germany = Happiness!!

Architects specified our Oli-Natura HS Hard Wax Oil as a highly wear-resistant floor finish in a commercial environment.  The product is VOC-free and has a proportion of solids of nearly 100%.  A silky gloss can be intensified by additional polishing; yet the wood continues to breathe and contributes to a healthy room climate.  All this AND it’s durable, easy to maintain and resistant to dirt and water!
