Bamboo plywood comes in several forms and is designated, according to the production method, as vertical or horizontal grain. Natural bamboo plywoods are light in color and are sometimes called "blonde". Carbonized bamboo receives a steam treatment that gives it a warmer color and is sometimes referred to as "amber" or "carmelized".

After treatment and drying, a final moisture content of 7-9% is achieved to ensure optimum stability. These bamboo strips then undergo state of the art compression using E1 or E0-level adhesives which binds them together to form plywood. Zen Bamboo plywood is left unfinished and natural so that it can be custom stained and finished for maximum project flexibility.
