The build is coming along very cool. That velvet you got on Ebay is nice. I have one just like it except the scene is a little different. Great job!!!!!

In regards to your screws in the bamboo.......In my hut I cover all the screw heads with Braid. I also use tan deck screws in bamboo so it blends better.

Little spray glue on the braid and the bamboo makes it stick together pretty well. If you want a pic of how it looks let me know...

Hi Thank you for the info.
I'll see how it ends up, I think when the room is full / finished it will look ok.

Found 3 of these Bamboo Bar Stools on the side of the road.
Old and in very good condition. Just need some thin cushions


I've been doing some work outside so it's a little slow just now.



Was playing around to cover the screw line. But still working on that.

Looking absolutely fantastic!

I hope you don't mind, but we are using a couple of your designs along our bar coping.

Hubby bought the same router you got, I think, and was playing around with it today, coming up a treat so far! Not too bad for a total novice.

I was going to attempt to paint the design, but this looks so much better. Btw, where did you find your glass ball float? I've been looking at some overseas, but am a bit worried about getting it shipped for that size... breakages and such.

Looking forward to seeing more of your build.

Flying Martini,
Out!

Heliconias starting to do well along the fence - lots of Cow Poo.

I like working with copper.



Tiki inspired spout for a back yard down pipe.






I'll sand it down and later I'll add a acid wash patina finish.




The wedge soldered in the bend is to silence the rain dripping from the section above.

Still a WIP.

Old Baltic Feast Watson Stain on the woven Ply.
If your staining this ply you need to use a cloth and take it slow. It's a bit tricky. As excess stain can bleed out in about 10-30 min from the overlaps. Best to clean off any wicking or bleeding with methylated spirits on a cloth or the cloth you use to apply the stain.

I like the use of different textures for your wall coverings.
