Feel free to bring your torch over, our backyard is quite secluded. You just have to watch out for the "lawn bombs".

Happy Beltane to all

Today I'll celebrate boobs.

Interested in the solid bamboo, will be investigating that. Most bamboo flooring does seem to be 'engineered' but it looks like there is solid stuff available. Mark, if you can get any details on Kurt's construction please let us know.

Alan,

Given you are in the US, stranded bamboo ply is available and at the top of the heap in terms of quality (but not price)

Thanks, Dave, will probably just go with that (or bottom line, whatever the local lumberyard has), but I do like to idea of solid material. Looking closely at the pic of Kurt's speaker it seems to be laminated. Can't see any tongue and groove on the edges like you would expect with flooring material.

If you think about how thick the walls of even giant bamboo are (remember it is a hollow core grass), material of any substantial thicknes will be a laminate.

Kurt is likely butherblocking the planks before usingthem -- much as Bernie did when he used his old flooring to build Victor.

the stranded that Dave refers to on the 3/4" material relates to the 2 external plies only- the interior is 1/2" thick edge laminated core - smaller individual staves, but similar to block core plywoods of yore

one of my earliest cabinet refinishing jobs (jr high school shop class circa '64/65) was on an old RCA mono music cabinet with front close doors (not lid) record player and radio (must have been 15 yrs old at the time, and I can't even remember which parts were dead) - the case was all 5/8" block core walnut plywood - my sister still has it in a foyer as glove / scarf storage.
