Bamboo Wood Boards 3/4" x 11-1/2" (Choose Your Length)

Finally, woodworkers can enjoy adding bamboo to their woodworking projects with these solid boards of real bamboo plywood. Bamboo is lauded as a highly sustainable natural product that's durable and resilient, making it fantastic in many fine woodworking projects. Cutting boards, table tops, shelves, and picture frames are just some of the many uses for bamboo.

Fast growing, bamboo is actually a tall grass not a tree. The grass shoots are processed into flat strips then laminated together to form the solid boards. The material we stock here is known as 1-ply, a full 3/4'' thick and laminated into 11-1/2'' wide boards.

Now You Can Use Beautiful Bamboo in Woodworking!

These solid boards of bamboo can be cut, routed, planed, sanded, stained and finished just like other hardwoods. And it's not just a good, durable and resilient material but also highly sustainable and offers a beautiful, unique appearance.

I Ordered 3/4'' x 12'' Bamboo planking. it is high quality, and what I expected. Had it cut in half, and received without any damage. It was a fair price even in these days of crazy overpricing of lumber.

Very Nice Wood - Outstanding Customer Service
I needed some unique wood for a chessboard I am making and when I saw this website I took a look. They had bamboo, something I had never worked with but wanted to try due to its durability and sustainable nature. It was on sale so I ordered an 8' piece sawn into 2' sections. When the order arrived I was truly upset. Both actual ends of the board were split back about 4" and the sawn ends splintered pretty bad. I contacted Woodworker's Source and was told that I would receive a new board (cut in half only to reduce the tear out from the RAS) and to just repack the other boards for FedEx pick up. Two days later the package was gone, no charge to me, and a week later I had my new bamboo. THAT is fantastic customer service and it will keep me coming back to shop. The bamboo looks amazing and once stained will make a one of a kind chessboard. My thanks to Corey and the WS team.

cutting boards in the shape of Texas, Louisiana, Missouri.
The bamboo boards came as described and I glued 2 of the 12 X 24 together to make a 24 X 24. I made a template of the states and routed out the design and finished it with 3 coats of mineral oil and they came out beautiful. I was impressed that the edges were square and true so I did not have to join the edges to get a good glue joint.
