Bamboo sinks for the bathroom & kitchen

We’re always telling everyone how tolerant our bamboo boards are of water. Well here are some real world examples …

One day I was telling a client about the merits of bamboo boards, and told him that bamboo is exceptionally moisture tolerant, “in fact, more so than most other timbers”. His response was great! “Really”, he said. “Give me some samples”. So I left him with a bunch of bamboo board samples and was on my merry way.

A couple of weeks later I get this call; “Come see me!”, he said. When I arrived, on the table were the bamboo board samples I had left behind. We normally affix a paper sticker label to the back of our samples, and the one label had a decidedly green tinge around the edge of the sticker. Another sample had a fancy shape cut out of the middle.

He proceeded to tell me how he had tested my “moisture tolerant” comments. He’d popped the one bamboo board sample in his dishwasher & ran 3 hot water wash cycles. He was impressed in that it hadn’t moved or delaminated. So then he threw the board in his fish pond and left it there for the next couple of weeks. The other bamboo board sample, he took to the local granite shop & had them water jet cut a shape out of the middle of the board. “I believe you now”, he said. “And I’m REALLY, REALLY impressed at the bamboo board’s performance. It cuts & mills very well and most of all, it keeps it’s shape”.

Now when I walked away after our first meeting, I’d not expected that response, but wasn’t surprised when I got it.
