I made this out of scap bamboo and an old pallet I got out of a dumpster. My Aunt is into Mahjong game, the real Chinese poker. So I figured why not use Bamboo.

Nice table – Bamboo is a great product. I’ve worked with it quite a bit. It is extremely durable. I think more woodworkers would like bamboo if they gave it a try.

Believe it or not, we’re putting in a hardwood Bamboo floor and the scraps are going to go in to something.
This table gave me an idea Robert. hmmm

Great looking table. Your aunt will cherish it. I like bamboo but it is difficult to find around my area. All I seem to locate is flooring. I built the balusters for my stairs out of bamboo a while back but I had to order the bamboo from california and the shipping costs made it too expensive for future considerations.

I got alot of comments on this table, I had a lot of fun making it and I learned alot about bamboo in the process. Just so you all know this was excess flooring that was thrown out. I just cut the tongues and groves off and glued it up. I think with the remainder I might put in a new kitchen counter, with a bright red tile back splash.
