OK, Mai Tai table instead...here is my newest creation for my living room -- a low table made of bamboo salvaged from debris of our defunct Trader Vic's. Cutting the poles to length and attaching them together was definitely a matter of experimentation!

That is AWESOME! Really like it. Good Job.

How did you connect all of the pieces together?

That is an awesome use of scrap Boo GK! Very well done. I have a large beveled glass table sitting in storage that can be revived thanks to this. Thank you!

Thanks for the comments. To assemble I had to sand off some of the old varnish, apply construction adhesive in select spots, rapidly position all of the bamboo, and apply a big band clamp around the whole thing! It was not for the faint of heart. Cutting the bamboo required a special jig for my miter saw.

Sorry about posting to "carvings" as this would have been more appropriate for "other crafts."
