You can stain un-finished Bamboo like any other type of wood, (bamboo stains like hard maple, its difficult, but can be done) Bamboo will accepts normal stains, water based, oil based swedish stains, and even natural oil an waxes.

staining bamboo is not difficult as one can wipe on a stain ( I used water-based stain for easy cleanup), and wipe it off and it is done. very little effort for beautiful results. the next time I stain bamboo I am going to use one of the color/poly combinations and let you know how that works.
