If you like the look of bamboo, check out Plyboo dimensional lumber, an interior-grade product made from Moso bamboo with a urea-formaldehyde-free binder. It comes in two colors, in edge-grain or flat-grain profiles. Dimensions range from 2x2 to 4x4, with lengths of 72, 96, and 120 inches. At $37 to $58 for an 8-foot 2x4, you won’t be framing with this; its real use is as an interior finish. Smith & Fong, 866.835.9859, plyboo.com
