Midcentury Plyboo Nightstand concept

Solid bamboo, dovetail joinery, soft-close drawer glides, bamboo spindle legs, hand-applied oil finish...  Does it get any better?!
This piece, like many of my pieces, was inspired by my favorite midcentury designers.  In this case, George Nelson and Paul McCobb.  Using bamboo plywood ("plyboo") I designed and built this nightstand concept as an exploration of combining mid-century design with modern, eco-friendly materials.  Even the brass drawer pulls are custom.  I love this piece and am refining it for production.  It will be available in natural, dark, and neopolitan plyboo.  It can also be made from any hardwood or plywood.  I hope you like it!
