Dimensional Bamboo Lumber

Dimensional bamboo lumber has all of it's layers running the 8-foot direction. Vertical planks have one or two layers, horizontal planks have 4 or 5 layers, depending upon thickness. We offer three sizes of dimensional bamboo lumber.

  • Odds and ends

Bamboo Plywood Panels

Panels are available in three types of construction: single ply, 3 ply and micro laminates. The single ply is used for items that will have multiple layers built up and where the bamboo's strength and flexibility comes into play, such as skateboards and archery equipment. The 3 ply is cross laminated with the core going the 4' direction. These panels are very strong and can be used for furniture, cabinetry and crafts. The micro laminates are made from cross laminated bamboo veneer. Even though these aren't very thick they are very tough. They are used extensively in the laser cutting world for things such as bamboo jewelry, signage, point of sale boxes and product displays.

We offer the following sizes:

  • Cross-laminated, 1/4" 3 ply natural vertical only. 5 ply, Natural and carbonized vertical.

Bamboo Veneer

Our .6mm bamboo veneers come with a cellulose veneer backing and can be glued with the same adhesives as other wood veneers. The two grain patterns are vertical and horizontal and the colors for each are natural and carbonized.

  • .6mm x 49.5" x 97", carbonized vertical and carbonized horizontal
  • .6mm x 46" x 97" carbonized horizontal
  • Edgebanding, 600' rolls carbonized vertical
