Working on a scratch build and may be able to get fins for it made of bamboo...

The alternative is the much-more-traditional baltic birch plywood. So obviously that would work, but... Bamboo is strong and light and - being porous - would probably take well to being glassed, as the resin ought to impregnate the bamboo a bit. Thoughts?
