Awesome stuff!

I wanted to slip in the difference between Bamboo and Rattan. Most of the "general public" don't know. Always calling Rattan, Bamboo. ( drives me nuts )

This is a Bamboo couch. Big diameters. Usually 4" and bigger. Hollow interior with pronounced nodes ( knots). From the Grass family. Does not bend when dry.



Rattan usually is 1.5" or smaller. Solid. A vine from the wood family. Bends easy when wet and a little harder when dry.

MAhalo for letting me vent. On with the Rattan show!
