Bamboo structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello all,
 
Has anyone worked with bamboo stems as columns, truss members, etc?  I'm curious about material properties, durability, jointing, etc.
 
I have a small "eco-project" in Ecuador and we're looking at constructing in bamboo.
 
Any thoughts or experiences?
