staining bamboo furniture

rosesr4meOctober 4, 2006

I acquired some cool 1950's bamboo chairs and table in the usual yellowish color with a gloss finish. I would like to stain them a darker (ie mahogany) color.

Has anyone done this to bamboo? Any tips, suggestions, etc? Thanks!

i would imagine you will have to remove the varnish before you could stain so you would def need to sand first...bamboo should take stain with no problems after can also try the wood working section on the forums they might be able to help also...btw nice aquire bamboo is like steel when it comes to furniture

I wonder if you could just do a paint treatment with glaze on it.
