Here's another"shamboo" project!
I made a bunch of 4" diameter shamboo, and split it lengthwise. Then I mounted it to brackets, and lashed it all to the lattice deck roof facia.
I made smaller shamboo pieces, and mounted solar lights onto them, and attached them at each bracket.
I still want to add more theming to the lights.
Here is the link to my How-To slideshow for the shamboo. http://www.astrodesia.com/bamboo/index.html

Super-Koolamundo work, Kewlava, my friend!
I like! I like a LOT!
Ya'd never know it was faux!
And I LOVE your name "shamboo"! Very clever -- just like YOU!

Man that is pure brilliance. It takes a creative mind to see something new in the everyday! That bamboo technique is amazing! AND it looks amazingly realistic. My hat's off to you for that one!!!
