It was super easy. I'm using 3 poles to make an arbor for my wedding. Did all 3 by myself. It took me a couple hours. The poles are 10' tall, 2 inch pvc. I used acetone to clean them, and the amber shellac for the color. The important thing is to sand the pvc after you have burnt the areas. Go ahead and sand over the burnt areas because it adds more color but make sure you only sand up and down, not sideways. It really looks like real bamboo. My fiance' is totally impressed.
