The processes and properties of sliced bamboo veneer are discussed in this article. The results show that using a dry-wet process in the assembly of wet laminated bamboo lumber is the key technology for improving the yield of sliced bamboo veneer. Use of the dry-wet process increases the moisture absorption of laminated bamboo lumber, which results in the improvement of heat transfer and makes it possible to solve the problems of bamboo damage caused by uneven softening. The yield of sliced bamboo veneer is 66 percent by the dry-wet process, which is significantly higher than the previous dry process (20%). The final moisture content and appearance quality of sliced bamboo veneer in the dry-wet process are improved compared with the previous dry or wet processes.
