Wow! New LumBoo is the 1st 
Bamboo Dimensional Lumber

LumBoo™ from U.S. supplier Cali Bamboo becomes the world's first engineered bamboo dimensional lumber. Made from 100% compressed bamboo, the product is composed of large poles that have been shredded into strips and configured into a matrix optimized for structural integrity. Once the bamboo matrix is built, a low VOC resin is added and the bamboo is placed into a hydraulic press which compresses the material at several hundred thousand pounds of force. The result is an extremely dense bamboo block and is nearly indestructible. The bamboo block is then milled and sanded into products such as 4x4s, 2x4s, 2x6s, and their ranch-style post & rail system.

The resulting product is an extremely hard wood that may in many ways perform like some tropical hardwoods. In other words, pre-drilling is recommended when working with fasteners, and a sharp, high speed mitre blade will be the preferred choice for sawing. Bamboo is typically termite resistant and also resists other forms of rot common to exposed softwoods.
According to the company, LumBoo adds a new dimension to the concept of what a fence can be. Many users find bamboo more aesthetically pleasing than conventional wood, they say, plus it's durable, easy to install, and made from the strongest, most environmentally sustainable wood on Earth. Cali Bamboo products are available in a full range of fence panels for all heights, colors, and diameters. Tested and proven in all U.S. environments, Cali Bamboo fences have successfully endured Category 3 hurricanes, blizzards, heat waves, floods, baseball bat beatings, and even car collisions!
Cali offers a certified dealer/installer program, and also provide support for do-it-yourselfers. In addition to fence products, In addition to fencing materials, Cali Bamboo also offers bamboo flooring and bamboo plywood.
