Setting a Trend with Bamboo Veneer

You can find it all over the news, in surveys, and the Internet: Bamboo as a building material has been rapidly gaining popularity. It grows quickly, it does no't need pesticides or much water, it pulls carbon dioxide out of the air, and it can be used in a nearly unimaginable range of products from clothes to kitchen utensils to furniture, floors, wall and ceiling panels.

M. Bohlke Veneer Corp. has been on this appealing plant with its distinct look for years. We offer quality Bamboo veneer in two colors: caramel (darker) and natural (lighter). Both are available in either of two cuts. Our flat cut features a wide grain 3/4” pattern. Our quarter cut offers a narrower grain of 1/4”. Bamboo veneer is also offered as FSC 100%. Ask us how we can make your next Bamboo project as beautiful and impressive as you have ever imagined.

New Machinery Added to Meet Customers’ Demand

The veneer mill of M. Bohlke Veneer Corp. recently added new machines to its existing lineup to meet its customers’ demand. The biggest purchase involved a half-round slicer which allows wider cuts of the individual veneer sheets. The second machine is a flitch cleaner to be used for a more even and regular surface cleaning of the veneer flitch prior to slicing. This will increase the yield of each flitch. Lastly, a wood chipper/grinder was installed to shred the log butts into wood pellets that are then used to fire our boilers. That way, M. Bohlke Veneer Corp. uses its waste as a by-product to generate its own heat.
