Bamboo Veneers: Has anyone used them?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, was just curious if anyone here has dealt with using bamboo veneers either inside a case, or outside. I'd also need possible suppliers (preferably 1/16th inch thick).

Figured it would be a sweet mod, since it seems carbon fiber has been done to death.

Discussion and comments welcome.

Look around for bamboo furniture and flooring suppliers in your area. Most large cities should have one, since it's become very popular in the last few years. I know of at least one in town here.

A quick Google search turns up a number of furniture-grade bamboo suppliers. It typically comes in woven patterns. I've never seen it used for computer case mods, but I've seen it used for furniture and flooring and wall panels. Quite attractive stuff, and very strong. Have an old fishing pole made from bamboo staves. I'd consider using it for my own mod, if I hadn't already got my heart set on cherrywood.
