woven bamboo subsititute for fiberglass cloth
I spent a lot of time in the Philippines and saw that they use woven bamboo mats to make the walls of houses.
While at the hardware store I saw fiberglass resin and remembered the wired.com article about the guy and the bambo bike. This got me to thinking if there was a way to use woven bamboo mats as a subsitute for fiberglass cloth. Mainly because I am cheap and not for environmental concerns.
maybe hand woven bamboo mats laminated together for plywood, or use as a boat hull? maybe housing material?
