Since 1999, we have been importing and distributing bamboo building materials to homeowners, contractors, craftsmen and industry. We pride ourselves on quality materials and personnel service. Small and large orders alike, get the same attention, no order is too small as we require no minimums. Should you need a sample or a small piece for a project, let us know, as we ship them out daily.
If you are new to using bamboo lumber, the applications are as varied as your imagination, anything you can make from a hardwood can be made from bamboo. Finishing can be done with any commercially available finish, caution should be used though and a small trial piece tried first, of course. You will find that your normal wood working tools will work fine. Should there be any questions please call us at 503-695-3283 or email us.
