I make the bedroom for my daughter. of course the furniture it must be colorful but the doors of the drawers and cabinets must be wood in wood color. I chose 20mm plywood for the wood parts. I cut 20mm strips and I rotate these at 90 degrees and I glue these again.

Very creative – I like the way the grain comes out when you rotate the plywood. Well done.

I’ve see turners use ply that way in segmented turning and it looks good. The doors are real neat.

Lot of work, but they should never warp. Nice.
