Vertical is side pressed. Bamboo strips are oriented on edge, reducing the visibility of "knuckles", and providing a cleaner, flowing appearance.
Natural color can be characterized to produce very light toned color stains, giving the bamboo flooring its inherited natural and earthy look of botanical bamboo.
Bamboo plywood is made of fine layers of bamboo strips laying in parallel order. The strips are kiln dried, sanded smooth and then laminated edge to edge to create a single-ply panel. These panels are then laminated again to each other to create a multi-ply bamboo plywood with free formaldehyde emission. The multi layers are cross-laminated and heat pressed together to provide stability and to prevent warping. 3-4 times more dimensionally stable then Oak. Bamboo plywood comes in 4'x8' unfinished sheets.
Bamboo plywood is especially interesting in those applications where the side of plywood remains visible, like steps of a staircase and kitchen work tops.
All of our bamboo plywood comes unfinished in both a natural (light tone) and a carbonized (amber tone) and is laminated to produce two different surface grains, vertical (edge grain) and horizontal (flat grain). The vertical grain appears as 1/4" strips and the horizontal grain appears as 3/4" strips on the surface of the bamboo plywood.
Bamboo plywood can be cut and sanded using conventional woodworking equipment. It can also be glued or mechanically fastened using the same materials and fasteners commonly used with wood. Bamboo is a low resin, open grained material that takes stains and finishes exceptionally well.
