Construction: Super-Duper Woods

Though wood may grow on trees, true inventiveness is a far scarcer resource. And yet we found these newly available—and virtually indestructible—modified woods.

Cali Bamboo's Lumboo, the first dimensional lumber made from eco-darling bamboo, consists of bamboo strips compressed in a low-VOC resin; from $3.12 per linear foot; calibamboo.com

Kebony and Accoya are molecularly tweaked to take on the traits of tropical hardwoods, with all their handsome stability: They're rot resistant, won't warp, and aren't subject to the insults of water and insects. Kebony, from $2.75 per linear foot; kebony.com. Accoya, from $3.20 per linear foot; accoya.com
