Bamboo

Bamboo is a renewable resource that has become one of the most important alternatives to tropical hardwoods in recent years. Upon seeing bamboo wooden products like flooring, kitchen cabinets or cutting boards you might wonder how round hollow bamboo stems are processed into solid bamboo lumber? Since the shoots are only a few inches in diameter, bamboo is cut and laminated into solid boards or sheets. The wood is approximately as hard or harder than red oak.
