Subject:
Bamboo for workbench top?

Denis Chenard in Ottawa
Around here Lowe's has a sale on bamboo countertops, I could buy one, rip it in four pieces, and make a 3" thick split bench top. Any reasons why I should avoid bamboo? I seem to recall that it can't be planed, which would be a serious impediment to bench top maintenance.

Opinions?

Thnx,

DC
