In this research study, Bambusa ssp, the utilized species of bamboo, was rendered into a more versatile construction material in the form of laminates. The laminated specimens were manufactured using simplified processing methods according to the ASTM D3039 and ASTM D143 standards. Polyvinyl acetate was the adhesive used between the 2-ply laminate. The mechanical properties of the specimens were evaluated through tensile, compressive and bending strength tests according to set standards on the Testometric M500-50AT Universal Testing Machine. The tensile strength of laminated bamboo was comparable to that of redwood, spruce, cedar and pine. The ratio of compressive strength of parallel to perpendicular fibers in compressive tests was in a close range to that of poplar, fir and pine. The correlation in compressive strength values between bamboo and wood confirmed the inherent anisotropic nature of both plant materials.
