Re: Bamboo Planking

Looks good. Not quite the look I would have gone for, but good nonetheless.

One question: I've used bamboo plywood for a couple of projects (around the house, not on the boat). I found that in that context bamboo was both heavy as hell and dulled saw blades and router bits like nothing else I've ever come across. Of course, bamboo plywood is a bit different from the sort of planks you used. But did you find it to be inordinately heavy and/or tool dulling?
