Introduction: Bamboo Bike Rear Rack
just have fun making stuff- pov
Step 1: Material
picking out bamboo was simple any local hardware have them. I use a1/2 inch bamboo made for gardening and cut it down to size. instant adhesive twine cutting tools AND FIRE I'll explain later
Step 2: Pilot Marks and Framing
cutting down the bamboo pieces and gluing it together. ..trust me I eyeball and wing it the whole way. But what better way to express your artistic side if you go by the book.
Step 3: Wrap With Twine for Support
bonding it together with twine for look and actual physical use. .it came out great for that vintage look..I use the instant adhesive to bond it together
Step 4: Burn It
because the twine is fuzzy and messy looking use a lighter to burn it off for a cleaner look at the same time I blow torch it to stress out the bamboo and give it a unique look to it
Step 5: Epoxy Is Great
using epoxy to bond everything together and give it a clear coat finish any 50/50 mix will do ...eBay is cheaper ?
Step 6: BAMMMM MMM DONE
simple easy going with the flow thank you for viewing please LIKE COMMENT AND SHARE Thank you LONG BEACH CALIFORNIA
Step 7: Final After a Few Adjustments
never work in the dark give it a rest until next day light
