*What makes "Carbonized Action Bamboo" different than the Option 2 Bamboo?


It's a treated material, as opposed to natural.  The bamboo has been heated to caramelize the compounds within, giving it the amber or gold color instead of vibrant white-yellow.  It's also been laminated and pressure treated, similar to the popular maple actionwood laminate.  While no longer as lightweight as natural bamboo, the material is a tougher and more consistent through its structure.  As a result, it makes for an excellent core wood.
