Does anyone here have much experience working with bamboo? I'm want to try to make some picture frames and could use some advise.

I need a few too. I plan on giving it a go for some unframed vintage lovelies that need custom sizes. Cowtown gave me a tip I may try and share when complete.

We cheated and hot glued some bamboo to an existing frame and did some faux square lashings in the corners. I'll see if I can scare a picture or two up.

Thanks. I found some youtube videos but it helps to be able to talk to someone with some experience. I will try to post some pics of project. I think I see a hot glue gun purchase in my future! I have a brother who lives in Georgia and when he drives up for a visit, he brings me some bamboo that grows wild near his house. want to learn how to work with bamboo to create some kool tiki treasures.
