Mid-Century Modern Plywood

Dredging up an old model of an older piece from around 1957. Based on a design by Mario Dal Fabbro.

Nice. I learned early from other persons’ bitter experience that you cannot use plywood for cabinet doors as it warps

Thank you. I think it depends on how the plywood is used and finished. I’ve seen it used successfully for doors many times.

Groovy! :sunglasses:

In our parts, the usual furniture and cabinetry material in the 1950s was blockboard that keeps its shape better and is lighter. Doors for buildings were made from two thin plywood boards glued to a wooden frame, with an infill of low density fiberboard, wood blocks or cardboard in hexagonal cells.
