Below are several photos of Arrow running bamboo (Pseudosasa japonica) in 3-gal and 7-gal containers. Unfortunately when ever you mention bamboo flooring people automatically think of the canes or round poles that you see Panda's in the zoo chewing on. They think that it will be uncomfortable to walk on. Yet if the truth be told the bamboo flooring that is available today is as flat as any other kind of laminate or hardwood flooring that you can purchase.

To achieve their smooth shine, freshly cut poles are dried in a low-oxygen high heat kiln. These poles are generally straight and crack-free although, like all bamboos, occasional fissures and bends sometimes occur. Different types of poles as well as different lengths and diameter poles can be mixed together. Some people want all their poles to look similar while other people prefer a more irregular look with varying thicknesses of canes, different color finishes (like mixing black canes with the tan ones) and different length poles. If you've grown a big variety of bamboo plants, then you could be ready to sell to them.

Bamboo and Tikis enables you to choose among a wide variety of high-quality products to construct your ideal tropic backyard. Our rolled bamboo fencing is made of durable Tonkin bamboo cane from southeast China. We also offer several natural and black tiki poles, including full round, half-round poles, and bamboo slates. Another decorating idea would be to throw a beautiful bamboo area rug on your patio or indoors in your hallways, kitchen, living room, or another desired place. The bamboo is laminated onto a fabric with a non-slip design providing both durability and versatility. In one day, a bamboo plant can grow up to 60 centimeters (23.6 inches) on average.

The local carpenters made the cupboard handles from bamboo scraps after I showed them how to. The floor was left cement with terracotta colored dye added to it. This is just a closer up view of the recycled tile sink and cupboards. To the right is the add on to the original pump house with the bamboo bench table in front of the animal house. The exercise of making a fishing rod on my own not only made my fishing experience much more enjoyable, but also created in me that necessary self-confidence to start building a bamboo fly fishing rod. However, with the help of master rodsmiths and, today, the internet, you can find all information about how to make your own bamboo rod.
