Bamboo is an attractive and stunning alternative to hardwood and plywood products. It's strong, sustainable, looks great and is so versatile. Bamboo panels are ideal for any wooden application - from wall coverings and ceilings, bench tops and kitchen joinery to shelving, furniture, staircases to doors, shelving and more.
Our bamboo panels are sourced from Plantation Bamboo, and can be cut effortlessly on our CNC machinery. The edges can be custom routered. Bamboo surfaces are usually oiled or polished for best finish results.
Hard wearing solid timber
When Cutshop Mt Wellington, franchisee Simon Morton, needed a new desk, he had everything he needed on hand! Simon chose bamboo as opposed to the more commonly-used MDF and here’s why:
“I loved the idea of using bamboo because it’s a hard wearing, solid timber that’s naturally beautiful. It looks great when you varnish the edges and expose the grain. You can introduce curves and simply sandpaper to smooth off rather than edge-banding. I also like the fact that the desk has been made to my own specifications because we custom-designed, cut and assembled it all at Cutshop.”
Solid wood finish
A customer of handcrafted furniture maker Saxon Steelworks fell in love with bamboo ply and asked them to make a set of tables to match her existing style. She wanted a mix of modern and industrial, so they used NZ RHS steel, and had the pieces zinc and powder-coated to add longevity. The accurate cutting and clean edging by Cutshop Waikato made it possible to get four side tables, a large display table, an entrance table and a double layer coffee/tv table out of a single 2400 x 1200 sheet.
