bamboo is tough, but don’t doubt it for cutting surfaces.. Just remember this. It is a grass, and it does silicate. like all grass it sucks up silica into it’s structure and that is on whole difficult. As far as I have seen NO cutting board is a solid wood :) .. Bamboo works great because of it’s durability and it’s natural resistance to bacteria. You have to work with it like Ipe. It is extremely hard…. but oppositely porous. End grain applications will suck every thing up, but give 1/4 sawn applications of all woods a run for the money. In the slab (yes this must be steam, flattened, glued, and re sawn,(at it’s best it can gain a trunk of 4-6”) It is VERY stable.

Shortly I love the stuff, But don’t think of it as wood, it is HAY (grass, for all out of the farm)
