squared bamboo

Square Bamboo.

Grown in west-central Alabama by retired Anglican Bishop, Edward Whatley who read an article which stated that those who practice the Shinto religion in Japan have a single piece of square bamboo in their prayer corner.

Research and reading led Bishop Whatley to discover that the Japanese pioneered the technique of squaring bamboo centuries ago, but they generally stopped making it in the 1920's.  Nowhere online or in books could he find anyone who currently squares bamboo. Hence, he set out on a journey to form his own. A Japanese friend took an interest in his project and assisted Bishop Whatley in locating the formula.

So now Bishop Whatley "squares" his own bamboo. He has found that Giant Henon Gray and Vivax, of the 8 varieties he grows, work best, though he is also experimenting with black bamboo (P. nigra).

Last year he built and set out over 100  frames. This season he will set out some 200 or more frames, with each frame being used 2 or 3 times in the season. Bishop Whatley also makes Harajuku lights and "crooked hiking sticks". For inquiries: [email protected]


Biologists are saying that giant timber bamboo sequesters more carbon dioxide than any other plant...

Bamboo's Age:

Less than 30 days - good for eating
6-9 months for baskets
2-3 years for bamboo boards or laminations
3-6 years for construction
After 6 years bamboo gradually loses strength...

For long life, bamboo needs to have its starch content reduced. This is accomplished by first air drying, and then by soaking the poles in water for a few weeks. See: Spanish:

Bamboo Chairs
Reply #10 on : Wed January 08, 2014, 04:03:54
WOW!!! What an incredible designs, the bamboo chairs in particular blew me away, and the whole bamboo kitchen in Indonesia... I love Bamboo, anything, from bamboo lounge chairs to coffee tables. Bamboo also fits into the beach theme interior design, rustic look etc. etc. But it's also good for the 1960s hippie look, like these lounge bamboo chairs:

which would look amazing with white & orange bold graphic print cushions, what a statement addition to your room!

Bamboo furnisher and other uses
Reply #1 on : Fri December 07, 2012, 08:50:05
I am highly impressed by bamboo products on your website. I am in South Africa and like to find out if plans for the furniture are available or is there copy right on them. Bamboo growing is just starting in South Africa and I am interested in using the product for making furniture.
  • Integrated Solar
    New building-integrated photovoltaics or BIPVs blend almost seamlessly with traditional roofing materials.
  • Wood Stove Decathlon
    Currently the majority of wood stoves in use deliver only 40 to 50 percent of the energy potential of the wood. This is highly wasteful. But on a bright note, many of the prototype models entered into the Wood Stove Decathlon squeezed out more than 90 percent of the wood's energy potential and burn much cleaner than older stoves. One of the keys is complete combustion...
  • Cob Under Construction
    Sand, clay and hay. Mix it with your hands, your feet or a Bobcat. Sculpt in place.
  • Historical Cob
    There are cob homes in the UK that are a thousand years old. In Jericho, by the Jordan River, a cob building still stands that was built 10,000 years ago.
  • Cob Interiors
    Earthy and warm, the inside of cob homes exude an incomparable charm.
  • Cob Homes
    Cobbing is making a resurgence. Form clay, sand, water and straw into lumps (or cobs) and create an 'anyform' house.
  • Books As Furniture
    Creating furniture from books... Due to the glue that binds books along their spine, most paper recyclers will not take books for recycling unless the cover and glue is removed.
  • Earth Sheltered
    The earth-house uses the ground as an insulating blanket that efficiently protects it from temperature extremes, wind, rain and extreme weather events.
  • Modern Underground
    Underground homes with a modern bent. A large thermal mass stabilizes inside temperatures, giving you free heat in the winter, free cooling in the summer.
  • Stacking Firewood
    Ingenious ways to stack firewood.
  • Rocket Mass Heaters
    The rocket mass heater works on similar properties as a masonry heater. A fast, high heat and oxygen-fed fire burn up the volatile gases and particulates, leaving very little pollution, and turn almost every ounce of wood fuel into energy.
  • Masonry Wood Cookstoves
    Masonry heaters can incorporate cook stoves. And cook stoves can act as masonry heaters for small homes.
  • Masonry Heaters with Ovens
    Bake ovens can be either white (the fire is in another box, usually below the oven) or black (the fire is in the same compartment as the food being cooked).
  • Masonry Heaters
    Heat, not pollution. The cleanest burning wood stoves have been around for centuries, yet have taken a backseat to metal wood stoves and other polluting energy sources for far too long. Time for a revival!
  • Indoor Pizza Ovens
    If you live in a cool climate, you might as well investigate adding a masonry heater along side your pizza oven. Or at least understanding them so that you might take advantage of exhaust heat.
  • River Rock Fireplaces
    Although lots of mass and beautiful, most heat goes straight up the flue. Build a conventional fireplace for beauty alone, build a masonry fireplace for heat.
  • Container Homes
    Somewhere around 30 million steel shipping containers exist today. 8 feet wide by 8.5 feet high, and either 20 or 40 feet long, they have been the globally standardized transportation module since 1956.
  • Outdoor Earth Ovens
    Examples of pure cob and adobe, and refractory castable cement over bricks.
  • Outdoor Brick Ovens
    Recycle some old bricks...into an oven.
  • Outdoor Masonry Ovens
    Build an outdoor oven with local stone and DIY skills for a few hundred dollars. Or, buy an oven kit and have it veneered for a few thousand.
