Step 1: Gather Materials and Tools
5/8" or 3/4" Straight Cutting Bit
1/4" Slot Cutting or Rabbeting Bit
1 X 4 Super Strips
MDF or Plywood for Jigs
C Clamps or other hand clamps
1/4" Dowel rod
Pipe Clamp (optional)
Step 2: Create Jigs
The arched jig is pretty simple, just sketch out the curve on the MDF/Plywood. If you have the ability to glue strips together, you can make a steeper curve. That being the case, I can't give you plans for that curve.
The jigs for the legs are simple. If you don't have a bushing setup, you can change the jig a bit to add a border to create a 6" channel for the router base.
When using the jig, clamp down both sides of the bamboo. The clamps are primarily to keep the bamboo straight. The jig should be tight to so the bamboo cannot roll side to side. Cut through just the top layer of the bamboo, the ends of each segment will remain for structural purposes.
Step 3: Route tenons, route grooves and cut side strips
The side strips are as thick as the groove in the bamboo is wide. They will be just wide enough to reach the surface of the bamboo.
Again, the cuts will be made when the ends of each segment where the strips cross them.
