A Case for Arduino: Bamboo Cutouts

Here are some of the test versions of the end plates for the case.
More information about the Arduino Case design project can be found here.

Untreated laser cut bamboo panel.

The same panel after being stained and a light polyurethane coat.

While the bamboo is 100% renewable, I'm not sure how green it actually is once you consider the glue, stain, and polyurethane. Regardless, I still think it looks beautiful.

Cool! Green... hmm, how about a natural finish like Tung Oil? Not sure if you can treat Bamboo with that. (New to woodworking what can I say)
