I had a piece of laminated bamboo left from a job we did a few years ago and decided to make another serving board.
Bamboo is pretty nice to work with, kind of waxxy fealing, fairly hard, burns a little but not hard to sand out, slivers a little but not a problem, sands very nice, stinks like someone is frying cow pies when you rip it on the table saw…whew doggy!
It make great boards and spoons, I love this stuff, it has the perfect weight, density and feeling.
The inlays are bloodwood, walnut, wenge, maple.
I did my bent inlays by very smoothly making a sweeping cut on the bandsaw without slowing or correcting. Then I slipped in a thin strip of bloodwood.
Make sure the strips are longer than the board because the bends add to the length needed.
Its about 9×15
