dassoXTR Classic Espresso Lumber 1"x8"x6' Lumber Flush with Oversize Trim Fused Bamboo
dassoXTR Fused Bamboo Lumbers and Panels are to be considered as rough sawn solid lumber. They are generally S2S (Smooth 2 Side) without side treatment; though generally the sides are clean cut thus giving a true square edge on all side. The materials are sanded on the surface to P180 sand paper just like all plywood and mdf (Medium Density Fiberboard). And like all lumbers and panels product, choose you side as expose surface carefully. Both lumbers and panels comes with only one surface as AA grade and the other surface as CC grade. When working with Fused Bamboo product, always assume you are working with natural tropical wood. The material feels like wood/bamboo, looks like wood/bamboo and react almost like wood/bamboo except more stable and durable. When working on fused bamboo, cuts, mills, glues and coats them as if you would do on a piece of tropical wood (Ipe, Cumaru, Redwood or Cedar). Use the same millwork tools and woodworking techniques you learn in wood technical schools. A common tungsten carbide saw blade will be able to provide a clean cut on dassoXTR lumbers and panels. The material itself is Class A-rated, dimensionally stable, will not warp or buckle, zero VOC and no leaching.
The Lumbers and Panels comes in 2 different colors and as always, the lighter Epic Cognac color could be stained or painted over in semi-transparent polyurethane or solid color polyurethane. The fused bamboo product colors are throughout the thickness and are not skin deep. Always remember to follow coatings manufacturer application manual to get the best effect of finishes. As with wood, fused bamboo would rich up in color when a layer of coatings is applied to its surface. Do not be surprise when a finished piece look different in colors to a unfinished bare fused bamboo.
