This bamboo is available in packs of 5 or more.
Made in China, this 1/16' thick, sanded bamboo is milled specially for building skateboards and longboards.
This stringer veneer is made up of non-carbonized stripes, which have a natural light-honey colour and 4 carbonised stripes, which have a light coffee colour.
Bamboo sheets are made of many vertical strips, sanded and glued together.
Our bamboo stock is milled to a thickness that is suitable for bending into pretty radical curves, however not as extreme as maple.
Bamboo boards have great properties for riding, as it gives you back as much rebound as you put into it.
The bamboo is very fragile to handle until it is laminated, we have to prepare it very carefully, so that it will survive the trip.
That is why it is only available in packs of 5 sheets minimum.
How to use this product:
Experiment making an all-bamboo board, use this as a top or bottom sheet, or other combination of a hybrid of maple and bamboo.

Bamboo is very fragile. Splits are very common with this stock.
Even gentle handling will likely result in sheets splitting or even completely breaking 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.
