While bamboo has been used extensively in many parts of the world for thousands of years, it is just starting to become a more commonly used
material in the United States. Because of this there are not a lot of people who are familiar with some of the best ways to use these unique and wonderful woods. There are many aspects that make bamboo such an appealing choice for use in a variety of construction projects. The most obvious benefit is that bamboo does very well in humid or wet outdoor setting where other woods are susceptible to rot over time due to continued exposure to moisture. The most basic type of product you will find is bamboo poles which are found in sizes that range from 1" to 5" or more in diameter. bamboo poles are incredibly strong, with a tensile strength that rivals steel, which lends itself to not only decorative uses but also structural applications.
With all of the qualities that bamboo poles are known for it is really baffling that it has taken this long for it to catch on as a product used in construction. Now we obviously aren't going to see new homes featuring bamboo frame construction but there are a number of applications that are perfect for this strong and durable wood. Just one simple example of how bamboo poles can be used is in a traditional staircase. You could use bamboo poles for balusters on any indoor or outdoor stairway. In this type of application the wood is not only plenty strong enough but it will give your stairway a very unique look that will add value to your home.
Not only are there many uses for bamboo poles in interior and exterior home construction, there are many types of furniture that can be built
using this product. Anyone with some basic woodworking tools and carpentry skills has the ability to make some basic yet quality furniture. For example, if you have children you can make a bunk bed with a minimalist style out of bamboo poles. The bamboo is plenty strong to hold the weight that a typical bunk bed is subjected to and it is lighter than a similar design using more traditional hardwood.
