The lines in the bamboo really go with the lines between the drawers. Nicely coherent design and implementation.

Where do you get bamboo like that?

Nice clean, modern look.
I’m wondering how different it would’ve looked if you had oriented the grain vertically? Obviously, it would look totally different, but I’m just trying to imagine it in my mind for a bathroom that maybe has low ceilings to add a bit of false height to the room.
Thanks for posting this. Nice work!

Excellent work! I like it. Is it solid bamboo ply or veneer? I am considering bamboo ply to make cabinets, but heard complains about it not staying flat. How did it work out for you?

@sarit – there are a growing number of plywood bamboo manufacturers out there, shop around and you’ll find decent prices (just remember it’s a highly manufactured product so the prices might seem high at first, but it’s a highly renewable product, not to mention quite unique and has a great look!) check out plyboo.com for starters. They’re the big name in the business, but i find them a tad high on pricing.

I love this. I would like to have one made in vertical grain and light finish (honey?)
