Custom built plywood joinery

Achieve a functional, contemporary outcome for your next interior design project, commercial fitout or other custom space, with So Watt’s plywood joinery designs.

From the first consult, your project is accurately conceptualised and documented by our industrial design team using 3D modelling and visualisation. We’ll also provide feedback on the design from a manufacturing perspective, to identify hurdles without compromising the design intent.

Beautiful and sustainable, plywood is something we have deep expertise in. We also enjoy stepping outside the norm, and applying our broad knowledge of materials to create concepts that excite and deliver on time and on budget.


We care to work only with low-toxin, ethically sourced materials, minimising harm to the health of our team, our clients and that of the environment we all share

Why Custom Joinery?

Thoughtful and architectural, built-in joinery transforms residential and commercial spaces in a manner unmatched by generic cabinetry or shelving options.

So Watt’s sustainable plywood joinery brings a warm and sculptural element to spaces, along with much functionality. Bedroom cabinetry can incorporate concealed desks, media units or dressing mirrors. Living room shelving systems can include open and closed elements, or wrap around unusual contours.

Rich in tone and texture, So Watt’s soundly built plywood joinery makes a worthwhile and sustainable long-term addition to your designed space.

Our sustainable and ethical approach

No matter the project, we design for disassembly and separation of materials for eventual recycling, modularity or repurposing in a different function. If none of these options are viable, we collaborate with Reverse Garbage and other up-cycling companies to find a second life for our creations.

We also care to work only with low-toxin, ethically sourced materials, minimising harm to the health of our team, our clients and that of the environment we all share.

The finished result not only looks great but is very functional, the study in particular providing a very effective home working environment”

Currently having an afternoon drink on our Poppi Bench Seat, using one of our new Billi Stools as a side table and staring at the Riley Drawer Unit – which is perfection.”

— Vivian, Brisbane

They gave good advice on sourcing materials and CNC tolerances, and the plywood was cut cleanly and exactly to the drawings I provided. I will certainly use them again for future projects.”
