Carbonized Vertical Bamboo Veneer has a straight, 1/4" vertical grain with random nodules, narrow band, thin strand, and a tight cane grain. The color is a caramelized amber to dark tan and the grain is linear in the style of Teragren. Unlike most veneer, Bamboo is not wood, it is a grass.
Bamboo is a highly sustainable veneer. Some species grow nearly three feet a day during the growing season. Although bamboo is technically a grass, it has a woody stem, called a culm, that can be sliced and fashioned into a very attractive veneer. Strong and flexible, bamboo veneer is available in both carbonized (sometimes called caramelized) and also in its natural color. Natural bamboo veneer is a light yellow or tan. Planked bamboo sheets exhibit the familiar bamboo markings, while the vertical bamboo option has more of a straight grain.
All bamboo veneer is available in 4’ x 8’ and 4’ x 10’ sheets, in your choice of a 10 mil or 22.2 mil (Bubble Free Veneer) backer. 3M PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive), also known as sticky-back and peel-and-stick, is available by special order only. Special orders are non-refundable. All in-stock veneer is refundable for 365 days after purchase, with no restocking fee.
