Project Information

This is a table that I made for the Skills Canada PEI competition in cabinetmaking. It has curly maple legs with a birds eye maple top and shelf. The other two that you see are ones I made on my own time, not part of the competition. They have birds eye maple top and shelf with poplar legs. For this competition I won the gold medal, a Hitachi 18 volt drill and flashlight and I will be competing as part of Team PEI at the nationals in May held in Waterloo Ontario. If anyone would like the plans for this table you can find them here . On a side note, on the way home from the awards ceremony I bought a coffee and won a free coffee from Tim Horton's with roll up the rim to win… am I on a roll? Should I buy a lottery ticket? haha

I commend you on your accomplishment. I am a shop teacher and I had to squint, turn my head sideways and dang near stand on one leg to read those plans. I used to take my carpentry students to a state competition in Kansas, the plans were about the same. Way overdrawn for what was needed.

All in all, congrats.

Congratulations!!!!! At first I was trying to figure out "what is a PEI table"? ie… something special for clam chucking or lobster chopping… LOL.

I used to work at Red River College in Winnipeg and I know the high calibre of work competing in the Skills Canada competitions, you must be very proud to have won the gold for PEI. Well done.

Hey, I was at the skills competition in PEI that year.
I got to be on the stage with Holmes giving out medals.
I gave out most of the machining medals.
Nice job.

I competed at the first ever skills competition in ontario. My construction/woodworking teacher was a driving force behind statring Skills Canada back in the late 80's. It was based on the Vocational and Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) and I went to the Ohio state skills olympics as a guest to learn and compete as well.
