I really love the bamboo, so where did you find that kind of thing?

The bamboo is beautiful. Nice job.

I like the raw edge showing the ‘plyboo’ layup, it looks like an inlay. Nice touch.
I think this is the first Stickly reproduction I have ever seen in Bamboo Ply (plyboo).
Kudos to you for a well executed project.

You did a great job on this. That stuff is no fun to work with. I made a trivet today from some tiger strand bamboo ply and I’m still trying to get all the tiny slivers out of my fingers! The woven strand product seems worse than the flooring in terms of slivers.(but it looks so cool,it’s worth a few slivers).

If you search for “Bamboo Plywood”, you’ll find several places that will sell it to you, the trick is to buy lots to cut down on per sheet shipping charges. It is expensive though, $200/sheet IIRC.

What I did was to find a local green building supply store that also builds bamboo cabinets, and they let me piggyback my small order on top of one of theirs, that saved me a lot on shipping.

Have your say...
