Bamboo plywood

Bamboo plywood

(OP)
I read that some companies make bamboo plywood.
I'm in SoCal, been looking for a supplier, so far can't find one.
Anyone have experience with using it? Pros/cons?
I would like to find some and try it out.

RE: Bamboo plywood

I would think that it wood be really good. I remember researching bamboo about 55 years back when the sliderule I was going to purchase was fabricated from bamboo. I was surprised that it was so dimensionally stable. My sliderule has not delaminated in the time, and I suspect adhesives have improved.

On a positive note, nearly all bamboo will be quartersawn...pipe

Thanks. Being quartersawn is why I'm interested.
If I can find it, I would like to make some cabinets from it.
