PureBond Project at the Penguin Parade Visitor Center!!

peng_1_largePureBond is everywhere…check out the this interesting PureBond project at the Penguin Parade Visitor Center on Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia!!!!

peng_2_largeAs bit of background, the existing visitor centrer, built in 1988, was in need of a total refresh. And even though they had a limited budget, designers peng_3_largecrampton d+a and bohnstudio decided to use eco friendly finishes wherever possible in the new remodel. Primarily, GEN-ECO formaldehyde-free. PureBond maple plywood was used throughout for interpretive displays and wayfinding signage. A number of surface treatments were directly applied to the plywood: digital printing, stains and painted finishes completed with fabrication/installation completed by TS Constructions, South Coast Kitchens, Consolidated Graphics. All other existing surfaces such as walls, ceilings and columns, were painted the same dark grey blue color of the penguin’s feathers to not only unify the backdrop but to make it recede. The finished result gave the interior spaces of the visitor center, a spirited atmosphere highlighting the little penguin’s journey from “burrow to sea.” 🙂

PureBond Bookcase Using A Re-Purposed Old Door!!!!

2119-157x300I love it when something I post inspires someone to create something new and cool like this fabulous bookcase made from a re-purposed old door and a piece of our Birch, formaldehyde-free, PureBond hardwood plywood courtesy Cher-Ann at Designs by Studio C 🙂

2052-300x225Apparently it took a bit of looking but Cher-Ann finally found an old door for $45 (a bargain if you ask me) at a local flea market and snatched it right up with intentions of building a bookcase from it and re-selling it cause she is currently over-flowing at home with creations! However, once completed, this unique bookcase was snatched up by one of her friends before it even hit Craig’s List…gotta love that 🙂

For all how-to information and  plans, check out Cher-Ann’s blog post by clicking here…I feel pretty sure you’ll want to try your hand at a  re-purposed door project after reading all about it 🙂
