I have an unlimited supply of nuisance bamboo growing near (under) my power lines. We are constantly hacking away at it. If anyone wants any for projects drop me a note. We'll work shipping out. Diameters from tiny to 3" across or so. Flutemakers this could be what you need!
I edited this to add... Does anyone have any ideas for projects with an unlimited supply of this bamboo? It would be fun to make something out of this thing that has caused me so much grief, into something other than a bonfire.
David, i discovered a guy making bamboo saxaphones last year and found his stuff very inspring. I never got around to trying it though. Anyway, take a look at the link below... pretty cool stuff!
i make an indian dbow made from bamboo and a coconut all plentiful in florida
make a pergalo or a gazeebo, be a cool outdoor project
just a thought !!
this is really simple bamboo, coconut/gourd/tin can, an E1st guitar string or bicycle brake cable strand, goatskin or soda bottle plastic, a carved tuning peg and a button.
