the bamboo market offers two color tones. Dark and lite.
the bamboo market offers product in two color tones. Dark, sometimes called "caramelized", and lite "more usual". In my own mind, I expected to reseve the liter color tone that would better match the rest of my remodel motif. I suppose the photo shown on the Woodworkers web sight is close enough either way, but you can't relay on computer images for color correctness when your mind is correcting in your favor. I would liked to have known in text form... I guess I'll make do... otherwise, well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. 3/4" mesures 3/4". That's good, cuz I cut my dado's before delivery. Shipping took longer than my patience.

Love working with bamboo
Super straight and easy to work with. Holds a stain really well and has other properties of hardwood with its own unique character.
