This little jewelry box was made and given to a friend for her50th. birthday.
Bamboo LighthousesThese lighthouses are made of all bamboo culms, each one is different. Each rock is selected and chiseled out to accept the base of the lighthouse.
|Pathways and steps are chiseled into each rock along with handrails made of bamboo. Over twenty hours of work goes into each lighthouse. |
Bamboo ArticlesSeveral small boxes made of bamboo with knobs of Ph. nigra (Black). Bamboo makes beautiful pipes which Ph. nigra was used for the stems.
|Bamboo Table This table was made with Ph. viridis for the legs and Ph. nigra (Black) for the cross bracing. This picture really doesn't do it justice but with the smoked glass top on top of the black bamboo, it is really pretty.|
DidgeridoosThese aboriginal musical instruments are made of bamboo and have been played by the aboriginal people for thousands of years. I have experimented with several species and each has a distinct tone depending on the wall thickness and length of the culm.
A variety of bamboo gifts I have made over the years
|These are some pitchers of P. vivax that I |
made for Christmas presents.
Bamboo PotA small pitcher for watering plants
One of a kind bamboo tea pot I made for Gayle.
Its body is of P.h.p. Moso. The spout and handle
is made of P. nigra Black. The lid is the butt section
of a large culm of P. viridis

formed in 2005.
