Tools
PlybooStrand panels can be worked like a wood product using the same techniques and equipment including hand and shop tools as well as CNC machinery. If you are working the material in a way that you are uncertain with, first test the method to confirm that the method and the material are compatible. If you have questions, please contact our technical support department.

Fasteners and Adhesives
PlybooStrand panels work well with most methods of fastening. This includes, joinery, screws, brad nailing and clamp and glue methods. Please note however that due to bamboos’ greater hardness and less give that screws should be pre-drilled and that hammer and nail should be avoided. All wood glue types are acceptable for use with PlybooStrand.

Sanding
PlybooStrand panels can be sanded like a wood product using the same materials and equipment including standard sandpaper, hand sanders and shop or industrial sanding equipment. Note however that PlybooStrand is more dense and hard and may have greater porosity than most wood products and for this reason may require additional sanding and filling to achieve desired results.

Finishing
PlybooStrand can be finished using conventional methods and materials that include hand- rubbed, spray, brush, dip applied or industrial roll or flow coating equipment with a UV cure system. All standard finishes ordinarily work well, but you should always check for compatibility, including by testing the finish on a sample piece. Because Smith & Fong cannot test the compatibility of every finish system available on the market, the ultimate responsibility for finish compatibility rests with the user. When applying a wax finish it is recommended to first apply a hard-drying seal coat.
