Comments about Bamboo Strips Planed and Flattened:

This is a great product. If this is your first time using bamboo, you do have to work with it. Being that we make bows, I expect to work any material that comes to me. The piece needed to be thinned. It does take work to get it too the right thickness. I used this piece on a Red Oak core. Tillered it down to 45lbs. The bow came out great. I used it at a 3-D shoot in April and placed 3rd.

      Comments about Bamboo Strips Planed and Flattened:

      Purchased four of the preflattened and tempered boo backs for osage staves. Set aside in my hotbox until I was ready to use. Upon inspection I noted that the bellys' all were convexed and that the difference between the edge thickness from one side to the other was extreme in many cases. All four pieces needed extensive work to prep for glueup.

          I had no problem sanding down my product. All you need is a belt sander, as you'll need to sand down your bamboo a bit to avoid it overpowering your core wood. Product was exactly as described.

          Would not buy again

          By Adam

          from Georgia

          Comments about Bamboo Strips Planed and Flattened:

          I purchased the bamboo backing thinking i could just glue it up like the description says but i was wrong. After recieving the bamboo it was way to thick to use as backing. I spent another half hour on my belt sander to get the bamboo thin enough to use as backing. If you don't have all the tools to pre flatten, heat treat and thin it, i guess it would be ok. But just remember if you buy this product there is still work to do after recieving it.
