Now go to the bamboo grove.

We had a little to try to find suitable stems.

Bamboo to become strong enough to withstand the weight of a person, it must be subjected to heat treatment. Sugar in the stem actually turns into caramel, making the material very durable.

Begin to collect the frame back.

To get a lighter tone bamboo can sanded

Best glue Gorilla Glue – it increases the volume during solidification several times, filling all voids and glues tightly.

Cover the frame with two layers of varnish.

Done!
