    How the bamboo is laid out prior to pressing. Different arrangements give a different board face.


    Imagine a ruler laid flat on a table. This is our bamboo slat. Lay multiple bamboo slats next to each other and subject to a pressing machine. Hey presto, you have Plain-Pressed! This results in the individual bamboo slat and node details being clearly visible. A ‘plainer’ look, compared to the side-pressed.


    Using the same ruler analogy, imagine all the slats on their side. The bamboo is then pressed to create a more detailed face to the bamboo plyboard.

    The debate of side-pressed vs plain-pressed bamboo board ultimately comes down to personal preference on the look of the board.

    The standard sheet we sell is 8ft x 4ft.

    We also sell A4, A2, and 4ft x 4ft sizes as standard sizes.

    The following products are exceptions to this:

    • 1.35/1.5mm Bamboo Veneer
    • 3mm Bamboo Veneer
    • 40mm Bamboo Worktop


    The boards and veneers are ideal for this. See product page for individual product recommendations (e.g., on the 3mm it features as a product highlight).
