I just ran across this wild looking coffee table design. It is more about geometry and steel cable suspension, but I was interested in the wood that was used:
They mentioned in passing that it was made from “plyboo”, which I’m guessing is a portmanteau of plywood and bamboo.
I have noticed lots of flooring choices showing up made from bamboo, but until now had not actually considered that anyone would be making furniture with it. (beyond ratan and old-style “bamboo furniture” where nature’s original bamboo shapes are used)
Have any of you worked with it in your shop? I would love to know more about how it is to work with and what form-factors it is available in.
