I have always liked the stacked plywood exposed edge look. What do you think, am I crazy? Should there be more voids showing?

I kinda see it as the modern version of the cinder block book case.

I think the first project needed to add a layer at the upper and/or lower level for support. It seems to be sagging.

I do like it conceptually.

I have been working on some different picture frames lately and I took a sheet of baltic birch 1/2”, ripped it in strips, laminated it together to try a photo frame with Purple Heart to see what it would look like. I agree with you that less voids can be better and make for a unique project.

I like the exposed plywood edge look as well, but its gotta be done right and in the correct proportions.

The media console project you posted seems a little out of proportion on the top and the bottom as Buckethead pointed out. I think a thicker top and bottom would look much better. Also, the stacks that make the vertical divider would look better if they were flush with each other. Just my personal opinion.

Here is a prototype of a piece I created about a year ago that I have had sitting on my office desk. Many people comment about it. It is from laminated construction beams which were about 2 inches wide to start with. I cut them up and glued side by side and slapped on some 2 part epoxy. I want to make a frame with this system first and then possibly a coffee or end table.
