I have worked exclusively with bamboo for the past 6 years. This game table is one of my first projects.

Do you have more photos? I’d love to see this close up. Love the wood contrast.

This table is really unique and beautiful with the use of laminated bambo. Where do you get your bambo and in what sizes. I also would like to work with it. Again thank you for posting.

I really like this table, I’ve been thinking about the possibility of using bamboo. I have not had a chance to play with it yet though.

Beautiful table. I love the idea of using bamboo because you can cut it, dry it, use it in a project, and before you’re done, there’s more of it grown back than you used. Does it get any greener than that?

I can never figure out how to take a round, hollow log and convert it to something like you have here. Can you explain the process perhaps?

Best,

-- Jim

Bamboo is nice, but it is NOT a “green” product, despite all claims to the contrary. They use a ton of nasty glue to glue all of those tiny pieces together, then they ship it 1/2 way around the world. When you sand it, it just smells like industrial glue. If you want a wood which is really “green,” you should use locally grown and milled solid wood.
I’ve wanted to make a border for a wood floor using pieces showing the end grain.

Since when does glue mean you’re not green. Do they make the glue out of some kind of radioactive stuff or something? Also, if you think that shipping something halfway around the world is de-facto wrong, you’re falling prey to socialist propaganda too. Free trade is the thing that guarantees the fewest resources get consumed in the production of everything, period.
