writing-desk_7435C_2-e1359001476609Check out this beautifully crafted, Bento Box Escritoire: The “Douglas Coupland for SwitzerCultCreatiive Collection” – Writing Desk by a member of our PureBond Fabricator Network (PFN), NicoSpacecraft which was recently shown at the Interior Design Show in Toronto!

This awesome desk is part of The “Douglas Coupland for SwitzerCultCreative” collection which takes its inspiration from the “writer’s nook” and consists of a desk, chair, lamp, bookshelves. Click here to check out all the details!

The Bento Box Escritoire is constructed of wood, leather lined desktop, one drawer and storage boxes.  It is shown finished in black and cinnabar lacquer, trimmed in gold leaf. We don’t really know if any of our PureBond hardwood plywood was used in the construction but it’s a wonderful piece regardless, and we’re hoping to talk Nicolas @NicoSpacecraft into creating and entering something just as cool for our PureBond Quality Awards this year 🙂

A Little About Edgebanding

EdgeBandingThe beauty of plywood is that it is strong, flat, stable and is available in many beautiful varieties and veneers. However,  an issue that comes up pretty often and just came up again today is: How to Treat the Edges? Course the answer to this is, edgebanding which will make the hardwood plywood product you are using (I know if you are reading this that you wouldn’t use anything else but a PureBond product) hold up against wear and a help create a professional looking finished creation.

The edgebanding process is pretty simple and all you really need is: an iron (if you are using the iron on type of edgebanding), roller, sandpaper, utility knife and the edgebanding itself. Band-It edgebanding is a brand we are recommending to be used with any of your PureBond projects and can be found either online or at The Home Depot where they do carry some in stock or by special order.
