9/16" Natural Solid Strand Woven Bamboo
- Product Review (submitted on February 15, 2012):
Holy cow this stuff is hard!! I just ordered a sample so far but it's amazing, I'll end up buying it. I have about ten samples of various bamboo from iFloor, and tested them by dropping a pool ball from 5 feet since there will be a pool table in this room. Though all of the bamboo was harder than the red oak sample I got (via fingernail test), the pool ball left a noticeable dimple in all of the bamboo except for this one. In fact, it's so hard I was wondering if I was going to chip the ball! The red oak I was able to make a fingernail mark in rather easily, the various other bamboos I could with a little effort, but this one bent my fingernail and didn't leave a trace. Also, it's grain looks a little more like normal hardwood, random and thicker than the other bamboos.
