This paper presents and discusses the experimental study on the mechanical properties of LBL column both under axial and eccentric compression. The results shows that the ultimate load for the eccentric compression specimens with the eccentricity values of 30 mm and 110 mm are 95.2 kN and 31.8 kN respectively. Eccentricity is one of the main influencing factors for the ultimate bearing capacity of the LBL columns. Because of the vulnerability of the mechanical connections or natural nodes to tensile stress and secondly, laminated bamboo is vulnerable to defects that has more detrimental influence on the tensile resistance of the material. The variation in strain for the laminated bamboo lumber column sections is linear throughout the loading process, following standard normal section bending theory which is similar as that for the beam.
