Natural coloured 3 mm (1/8'') thick bamboo veneer.

Bamboo is available in 5 packs or more, or add single sheets to a maple or birch longboard veneer order.


Description: 


Size: 
117 cm x 26.6 cm x 0.3 cm 

Long grain sheets only. 


All the way from China, this is 1/8'' (3 mm) thick, sanded bamboo - milled for building skateboards and other projects. 
Non-carbonised, it has a natural light-honey colour. 


Bamboo sheets are made of many vertical strips, sanded and glued together. 


Bamboo boards have great properties for riding, in that it gives you back as much rebound as you put into it.


The bamboo is very fragile to handle until it is laminated, that's what it is only available in packs of 5 sheets. 


How to use this product: 

As this is a new material for us, we will be posting tutorials online when we (and our customers) experiment with this fine stock.

Experiment making an all-bamboo board, or other combination of a hybrid of maple and bamboo.


Best Vacuum Bag size: 20 x 70 Thin Air Press TPK20

Maintenance: 

Bamboo is very fragile. Splits are a fact of life with this stock. Even gentle handling will likely result in sheets splitting or even breaking completely along the glue lines. Shipping increases the chance of splits, despite our careful packing. If you order this stock, you will most likely encounter splits, however the sheets are entirely useable. Please do not contact us to tell us there are splits. Simply apply glue to those lines while pressing your board. Once dried, the board will be very strong.

No customer reviews for the moment.
