I work at Dixie Plywood in orlando florida. We are a pretty well known lumber supplier and my boss knows waay way too much about differnt types of wood and the benefits of each. We can special order Bamboo plywood, but do not keep it in stock because it is pretty expensive. Regular plywood is definitly cheaper, but that is the only benefit of regular wood. Bamboo plywood is very very highly regarded wood because it is processed naturally. When you are shopping for different types of wood, you might see advertised "natural" wood. there is no such thing. There are so many unnecessary chemicals added to virtually every wood manufactured.
Bamboo is different. It is eco-friendly and has no emissions that cause air pollution. Bamboo has a rapid growth cycle and is a renewable resource. Technically a grass, plywood and panels are made from the 'Moso' bamboo species and an e-zero non-formaldehyde environmentally-friendly glue.
Even when it comes to coloring bamboo, it is natural. Natural color bamboo plywood can be used to create any look from light to dark when stained. carbonized bamboo has a warm, honey color when treated with a clear coating.
