Expert Suppliers of Bamboo Building Materials

Northwest Bamboo, Inc. specializes in crafting and distributing the finest quality in bamboo building materials, including dimensional lumber, plywood panels, veneer and countertops, and more.

Welcome to Northwest Bamboo, Inc.

Since 1999, we have been importing and distributing bamboo lumber to homeowners, contractors, craftspeople, and industry. We pride ourselves on quality materials and personal service. Small and large orders alike get the same attention; no minimums required.

Bamboo 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 product after a trial run to determine the exact look you're after. You will find your normal woodworking tools work fine. Samples are available upon request.
