^^^ Yep, one of the most invasive species out there. Next to Kudzu. Which is way uglier and unusable for anything except to keep herds of goats fed or aiding with retaining soil for erosion purposes.

I believe Kudzu was brought to the US from Japan specifically for erosion control.

I don't like either one. The only way I've been able to get rid of Bamboo was to create a brush burn pile on top of where it was growing. It eventualy stopped coming back. Kudzu, I haven't figured out yet.

@Erich H
I asked about the SEOS-8 a few pages back. It may have been missed in the drama or possibly you aren't at ready to divulge the details. If it's the latter, that's fine. I just know it's easy to miss posts in this monster thread.

This thread sometimes moves too fast. I have a constant flow of emails telling me that someone posted to this thread and I check this thread daily, and yet I also missed the SEOS 8 update. Obviously I did not check it thorough enough.

I read how bamboo plywood dulls blades quickly, due to the silicates in the structure.
Fine Woodworking recommends carbide blades, and using belt sanders if possible at certain times instead of cutting to avoid tear-outs.

But the "carbonization" of the bamboo you're using (heating such that sugars in the bamboo caramelize and darken) also makes the bamboo like 30% softer? So maybe it becomes no more difficult to work with than some other hardwood?

Luckily commercial CNC bits are carbide, but yes it still requires more bit changes than Baltic or MDF. It's not the easiest material to work with, but worth it if you like the look. It's a very good material to build speakers out of, but the expense kind of makes it a higher end option.
