BAMBOO PRODUCTS: Does anybody have any good ideas for things that could be made out of bamboo?

I'm trying to get opinions from people for things of which they think bamboo would make a good substitute in place of wood.

FYI: Bamboo is actually a grass and grows right back up through where it was cut so therefor it doesn't need to be replanted and it grows back completely within 3 years. Using bamboo helps replace wood that might otherwise be coming from our precious Rain Forests.

Products already known and being made include: cutting boards, plywood, veneer, counter tops, picture frames, stair parts, flooring, paneling and moulding.

I need ideas of things practical and fairly easy to produce. I, myself, can recall from time to time throughout my daily life of times where I've thought, "wouldn't it be great if they made this or that or what if this could be made with something more environmentally-friendly?" Bamboo is extremely strong. Stronger than a lot of wood types. So I'm asking if anybody here has had those same thoughts and has any ideas for bamboo. Thank You! :)
