Aloha Daddy I'm like you. Someday this will have to come down so my install is made to create minimum damage and an easy way to take this all apart. I don't plan on doing this soon but someday it will happen.

I use small brad nails along the edge were the bamboo will cover the seam.



I don't put the nail all the way in so someday I can get a hammer under the head. The Bamboo will cover the nails so they won't show.

I drill a hole in the bamboo the size of a finishing nail.



When its possible I try to put the nail next to a node on the bamboo.



I then leave enough of the nail head exposed so I can get a small hammer head under the nail head.



Here's how this room has evolved since I started:

I like how you have kept plugging away at this. Learning from others but doing the work yourself. Lots of different projects and great solutions to specific areas. This is a really nice transformation. Keep it up!
