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.

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!

(I SO wanna make the trek out there for a VISIT some time -- preferably when the air-conditioning in my CAR has finally been FIXED!)

Cheers!

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!!!
