Synopsis

The Craft and Art of Bamboo 30 Eco-friendly Projects to Make for Home & Garden by Carol Stangler

Beautiful, sustainable bamboo is one of the most popular materials around for gardens and home decor. This highly regarded introduction to the material is now back in print, revised and updated. It still offers rich history, fascinating background and great projects, but with several new images - making this the most attractive source on the 'it' plant of the green movement. From weathering the plant and preventing insect damage to attaching, bending, flattening, finishing and preserving the bamboo, this photo-filled introduction covers it all. Over 30 how-to projects include a curved garden handrail, low trellis for climbing plants, porch swing and even an outdoor shower stall. Lush photography and abundant illustrations make the book a visual treat.

Reviews

[Bamboo] is increasingly being used for garden structures...and the projects in this book reflect that trend...Few books are available on this topic, so this should be welcome in all garden and crafts collections. -- Library Journal

The book's mood is at one with nature: a loose flowing text around color photographs, black-and-white illustrations, step-by-step how-tos, and boxed commentaries. -- Booklist.
