What an awesome job you did on this! This is flat out gorgeous and looks very modern! I am adding it to my favorites.

What thickness ply did you use, 3/4”? What are the dimension and how much did it cost you? After you glued up the plywood strips for the sides and the top, did you have to run them through a thickness planer to get a consistent thickness?

Do you have pictures of the build process?

I did not need to use a thickness planner at all > the table saw takes care of all that..> looking back i could have probably used less plywood as the box itself is made up of 1’5/8ths thick rips> confident that 1” rips would hold the same. i used a Russian birch 5’x5’ they are 49$ a sheet > used 3 sheets. 100lb drawer slides> i made my own drawers > in the same manner (stacked and glued) over all cost about 200$
>> I have been commissioned to do a wall at a business using this… will send those pictures after..

Nice work, like renners I am not a big fan of stacked plywood but some do really well with it.

I love this! I have had this idea of making some pieces by stacking baltic birch to create the material.

Some of the same kind of cabinet are only laminated, but this unique one seems natural wood.
