A customer from NC, Lexington Home Brand , used our 2" x 8' polished black poles in a recent home show display. The Bambusa family is comprised of many species, but a few of the more widely planted bamboo varieties in the U.S. are Bambusa multiplex varieties, commonly known as 'Hedge Bamboo.' The primary species are Bambusa multiplex 'Alphonse Karr', Bambusa multiplex 'Golden Goddess', and Bambusa multiplex 'Weeping Willow' bamboo. These clumping bamboo species are, like the running bamboo, not particular concerning soil type and the amount of sunlight required. Clumping bamboo trees are planted for use as tall hedges, privacy screens, windbreaks, or for their ornamental beauty. I personally like the look of worn bamboo, so I did not replace any of the poles.

A strong wind today filled the air with music as breezes blew through a mature stand of Giant Timber Clumping Bamboo (Bambusa oldhamii) at the original sight of Beautiful Bamboo nursery. For the next several months, canes cut from the groves at Beautiful Bamboo will supplement the diet of Asian elephants in the circus. We have 5 bamboo groves on the property and have been able to selectively harvest enough to use as the siding on the native pump house. We are using recycled materials such as broken tiles and bamboo scraps for towel rods and cupboard handles, which the carpenters used to burn!

Depending on how the chair is built, it can be easy to slide the bamboo poles out of place and replace them completely with a new piece. I then slid the tie wrap into place and tightened enough to close the crack but not hard enough to leave an indent in the bamboo pole. I had bamboo pegs that were holding the chair together instead of screws or nails. If your chair has screws or nails, tighten up the screws and check that the nails are well set into the bamboo poles.

In recent years, the collection and restoration of these classic bamboo rods has become a hobby with many fishing gear fanatics. Many people are taking grandfather's old bamboo fishing rod and attempting to restore it to a useful condition. The bamboo fishing rod hobby has been growing and there are now several groups devoted to spreading information about antique rods and offering help in identifying bamboo fishing rods and their value.

This is hard work as the pigs range in weight from 40lbs to over a hundred depending on the size and the bamboo poles are hand turned the entire time, if the guys stop turning the pig the hot coals will burn the skin. Then make another big lump/knot of rubber bands on the other side of the handle to hold it in place and keep it from slipping off the bamboo.
