Bamboo Wood Boards 3/4"x11-1/2"x8' (Choose Your Size), Cut to Ship

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.

These Bamboo boards are manufactured to 8' lengths, so we have to cut them down for shipping. You choose how you prefer to have them cut, and we'll ship right to your door. This gives you the most flexibility for your project needs.

Bamboo
Review by  John from Cincinnati, OH
I made checkerboard, end grain, butcher block cutting boards for my daughters. I offered them the opportunity to select contrasting light and dark hardwoods. One of my daughters chose Purple Heart and Bamboo, one Purple Heart and Teak, one Walnut and Southern Yellow Pine. I couldn't get the SYP so that daughter substituted Maple. I was able to get everything but the Bamboo from my local hardwood supplier. Because I could only get a 3/4 inch thick board, I had to do a glue up, but the product machined beautifully and glued up nicely. I had the 8 foot board precut into 2 foot lengths. There was one small area of damage (tearout) but I was able to position that in the waste. The projects turned out beautifully.
