Bamboo Dining Table and Benches


Step 12: Put the squeeze on it.

I wasn't satisfied with the squeeze fit, so i put it under the 80tonne hydraulic press. While this was an enormous amount of fun, i later found that lubricating the joints with bathroom soap, then using the rubber mallet with high frequency taps did just as good or better job, without being as nerve wracking.

on the plus side, i found out that each side of the bench supported a massive 10 tonnes... YES, 10 TONNES !!!!

that's 2 elephants sitting at my dining table....
