Re bamboo – My bamboo flooring has tongue and groove sides and no special treatment at the end.

I put down 2 layers of MDF, then the bamboo on top of that. I also ran 8/4 oak around the perimeter. It’s VERY heavy, which is what you want . You can see it in my workshop pictures.

It’s not as clean as in the picture any more. It’s been used a lot. It’s is VERY rugged.
