Just found your thread and love what you're doing! Gotta throw in my thanks for all the wood experimentation you've been doing as well. Fun to see and so informative. Keep up the great work!

From Sunset Beach Traders.
http://www.sunsetbeachtraders.com



So I've picked up some Wilco WSW110 / via clipsal Australia
Same size as the standard American Switch.













These Australian light switches look to be Art Deco Light Switches - Bakelite Switch


You can now also get the Belkin WeMo Light Switch, The larger American Rocker type in Australia.
I think this is the only large USA Style Rocker you can get in Australia. Should work with the Rocker switch plates.

For anyone Down Under looking to use the American Switch Plates here is the Clipsal info

Most of these are obsolete but you can still get the WSW Parts, You can check online with Clipsal Australia to see if the numbers are active.

Putting up a few of the 16mm MDF panels - to be covered in Bamboo ply

Using these Screw-in insert nuts


It makes a good reusable screw anchor to the pine battens




Using a 35mm M6 machine screw just need to fine some in brass




I'll be able to run cables behind the MDF




Also good to mount my slim 32" TV to the 16mm MDF






Hanging the picture for now is OK.
I do have an idea for a bamboo blind in front of the TV so it looks like a window.

A few more Pix.

Top Bamboo is finished. I burnt the top edge to blend in with the ceiling.



Now by hand just 480 screws for the 240 odd sticks of bamboo down the bottom.







Keeping the Bamboo Raw looking (not going to coat with amber shellac) to give the room a lighter contrast to the dark timber.
Trying to lightly burn the Knuckles. Turning down the blow torch helps keep the flame / burn width smaller.

I hate to mentioned it now, but if you routered the inside
top & bottom trim pieces, then cut the bamboo strips to fit
the trim pieces would hold the bamboo strips secure & you would not
need to screw down every section of the bamboo.

It looks good though, as is, just could have saved you alot of extra work.

Hi Atomic Tiki Punk.

Was thinking of a strip of timber/Bamboo top and bottom to hold them in place.
The varying thickness of the bamboo stopped me from doing that. But I proably could have worked out a solution in hindsight.
Might cover the line of screws with some form of binding.
