Here's a JPEG image of a colored plans:
 

A link to a zipped copy of the SketchUp plans for these medium nucs: SketchUp file - zipped

These plans have been tweaked, first by adding color and the detail of the tongue upper edge of the bamboo sides, second by the addition of dadoes across the ends, where bamboo scraps (trimmed from the bottom edges) have been glued into the dadoes for hand holds.

I got mine from COSTCO, to see what it was like. I decided not to use it for flooring, but might get more to use for flooring later. Instead of letting it sit around I decided to put it to use.

You can also get it at Lumber Liquidators.  It looks nice actually.
