Thanks for the heads up! Back when I was making frames from Dollarama bamboo cutting boards I would get the thin boards and glue two together (offset). The thin boards were only two bamboo layers thick so you end up with 4 layers after glue-up. I was still somewhat concerned with the strength because of the narrow bamboo strips so I stayed at 10 pound draw max.

I've found some of the bamboo cutting boards in supermarkets are not up to the job either. I'm so addicted I flex test them when dragged out shopping and many make some very unpleasant sounds.
