5 Unique Carpentry Projects Built During Bamboo U
A month ago, we wrote an article about the Top 5 Chair Designs Built during Bamboo U, which made us think about all the other types of carpentry projects which have been built over the years at Bamboo U. It made us realise that we have had a wide range of creative individuals join us at Bamboo U, most of whom were not designers by profession.
Some of the project ideas we are showing here were thought of on the very first day at the Bamboo U Carpentry & Design Station, just as the participants were playing around with the material and the forms, guided by Scott Vandervoort and our team of skilled bamboo carpenters. Others were premeditated, with participants who knew how they wanted to design and work with the material. Overall, all the carpentry projects built during a Bamboo U course are developed from concept to structure over the short span of 5 days, something which continues to amaze us even to this day.
Below, we have selected 5 of the most creative and unique projects which were made during one of our Bamboo U Courses. It was difficult to choose from all the ones we have seen and collected over the years but the ones we have featured here show that anything is possible with bamboo and a little imagination.
