Bamboo plywood–vertical grain–is made by laminating strips of bamboo turned on their edges so that the flat faces are pressed together.
Horizontal grain bamboo plywood is made in various thicknesses as either 1-ply or 3-ply. Bamboo strips are laminated edge to edge with the wider faces up to form the surface. This method of production shows the “knuckles” characteristic in a bamboo stalk.
By using adhesives that are both strong and emissions free, Bamboo plywood can be cut and sanded using conventional woodworking equipment. It can also be glued or fastened using the same materials and fasteners commonly used with hardwoods. Bamboo is a low resin, open grained material that takes stains and finishes exceptionally well.
Carbonized bamboo may be called "caramelized". Carbonized bamboo is medium brown.
