Is Bamboo a type of wood?
No. It may be a surprise to you but bamboo is not wood but a species of fast-growing grass.
Bamboo is known for its eco-friendly nature alternative to wood because it does not need fertilizers or pesticides to grow. Its density makes this material water-resistant which inhibits the growth of germs and bacteria!
Bamboo is not just popular with Pandas. They are widely used for culinary, medicine, construction, textiles, paper, and musical instruments just to name a few.
Today, with such a huge push for ‘Green” or eco-friendly products, bamboo is the material of choice for makers and consumers from all over the world.
As for my laser engraver, I love the results of the engraving using bamboo medium. The depth and the quality of each etch is wickedly clear. This is my current medium of choice ladies and gentlemen.
What other uses can you think of to use bamboo for?
