More plywood kitchen love…

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again… plywood kitchens are cool.

    Did you treat the top of the counter with anything? It looks bare in the photos. I did this a while ago, when I was a kid (only thing my family could afford growing up) and it worked well. We put a few coats of a a hard glaze over it though and then painted the counter. It came out well!

    Want! I love plywood furniture too; the good-quality stuff like birch ply has a great surface look, and the little veneer layers look fantastic at the ends.

    Bit dubious about using it for a worktop… presumably it’s marine-grade though.

    Any ideas what else might work as a topper for plywood cabinets? Maybe a glossy plain white resin?

      Hmmm, yes – not sure about a ply worktop either (although it looks ok). White resin would look great or even a square profile white laminate would work if you were on a budget. There’s a good but cheap one at IKEA with a stainless steel edge. Also concrete would rock!

        Funny you should mention stainless steel, that occurred to me as an option just after I posted my comment. Concrete’s a great idea, too. Both would give a really cool industrial look!
