Bamboo is my favorite construction material! Not only is it natural...it's also light, flexible, stronger than steel (when heat-treated) and you can make just about anything with it! You can furnish your whole campsite with it...*working on bamboo Lazy Boy recliner and wide-screen TV* j/k
Step 1: Camp Table
4- 32” bamboo poles
5-24” bamboo poles
8-12 24” bamboo poles for table top
1/8” sisal, cotton, hemp, manila or poly cord that does not stretch!
Nylon is not as good for this!!!
Hacksaw or coping saw to cut bamboo to length
Measuring tape to measure for cuts
Caution: Bamboo splinters can be very painful. Take care when using a saw that you don’t cut yourself! If care is taken when cutting the bamboo, splinters should not be a problem.
Lay two of the long poles side by side and lash them together in the center then lash the other two long poles side by side as well.
Continue lashing poles to make an A-frame and then a second A-frame
Lash the two A-frames together to make a table support
Place bamboo poles across the top to complete the table
