PureBond Children’s Sensory Board

PureBond, hardwood plywood, plywood, plywood panelsI’ve been so busy this Summer that it’s taken me a bit to get to this wonderful project, a Children’s Sensory Board by DIYer and blogger extraordinaire, Gina, a.k.a Lady Goats!! We love the idea that Gina made this project especially for a friend that had opened an in-home daycare business and was looking to outfit the space with some appropriate and safe, child friendly items. We pretty much can’t think of a more safe and friendly item to use for like projects than our PureBond hardwood plywood that is eco-friendly and formaldehyde-free :) For more How-To on the project, click here!

Art by Caprice Pierucci

Check out this awesome find courtesy of Columbia Forest Products’ (the manufacturers of PureBond hardwood plywood), very own Linda Sitz, an Inside Sales Representative who works out of our Trumann, Arkansas facility. These fabulous pieces of art are the creation of artist using Columbia Forest Products PureBond hardwood plywood panels. Per the artists’ website  ”The work reflects her background in fibers. The forms are mostly linear and use progressive rhythm to create movement and shadow. Her most recent work deals with the idea of forms developing over time. The layers and undulating rhythms in the forms speak of mortality and the huge expanses of time that lead to one particular moment of beauty.”

It’s great to see our PureBond products in finished form! for more on the artist and available works, click here.

Looking for new PureBond Idea Team members

PureBond SamplesIt’s been rather quiet this Spring for new PureBond Idea Team projects, so we are thinking that we’d like to add members to our PureBond Idea team!

If you don’t know anything about the PureBond Idea Team it is simple a group of DIY bloggers who use our PureBond hardwood plywood in projects that range from kitchen cabinets,  to built-ins, to DIY furniture, to wood crafts…pretty much anything goes just so long as the project uses our PureBond products and the DIYer/Blogger blogs about the project, mentions PureBond and displays our badge of their blog! In return, we not only try to promote the blogger but also reimburse the blogger for the PureBond panels used via Home Depot gift cards…pretty simple isn’t it?  :)

For more information, click here! Or contact us at: lwinkler@columbiaforestproducts.com. Or even better yet, if you happen to be attending the Haven Conference in Atlanta, GA in July, come by our booth!
