Description: 

In this remarkable design, the unique look of Plyboo end grain was employed. Plyboo is constructed of three plies of bamboo: the top and bottom face plies and a substantial cross-ply core structure. The core ply is composed of hundreds of smaller strips that are laminated together to create a strong, stable panel. With most hardwood plywood products the edge is typically banded to conceal the core. In contrast, Plyboo has celebrated its beauty and exposed core edges for years.

Palm edge grain plywood was also used on the cabinetry and wine storage behind the bar.
