There are really different bamboo plywood.
This has stranded and should be right one for cabinet.

Bamboo Plywood - Cali Bamboo plywood and veneer for kitchen countertops, cabinets, furniture, bars

The stuff you pictured is still good, but the surface is softer than the stranded and easier to dent. The one plus is that it is quite a bit lighter.

Yes, that's the right kind of stuff. A number of different external colour schemes. Available from a number of vendors here (ours weren't sourced from Cali (otherwise i would enter them in their monthly contest), but they were one of the most helpfull when it came to getting info. Plyboo should have it as well as they are who i actually got quantitive data from (we didn't get ours from them either).

It seems that there is few cabinet makers using bamboo plywood, most are MDF and regular plywood. My oakwood cabinet maker never used bamboo plywood before. I asked him try to look for bamboo plywood in the local market.

dave,

My friend recommended to brush Danish Oil to the surface of cabinets. Is this good?

RustOleum.com

Thanks,
Tony.

It is said that the Danish Oil can be applied to guitar and well protect wood.

That stuff does look quite nice, but I am slightly confused by the price. I thought you said that it was about 10x the price of baltic birch plywood, but at a cost of less than $200 a sheet that doesn't seem to be the case.

Those sheets do look pretty attractive though, I hope to see more pictures of your completed cabinets.

Where did you find that price? We buy wholesale and it cost us a lot more than that.

A Quebec supplier, they have their price list on their website
plancher bambou, bamboo flooring, Planchers Bois Franc montreal, panneau en bambou,cuisine de bambou,meuble en bambou
That doesn't include shipping, maybe I am missing something, but it doesn't seem to be overly expensive.

They don't have a price on the good stuff. I've emailed them.
