Handsome! I’ve never seen bamboo squared-off like that—inspired to go play in the workshop!

Good morning Michael,


There is actually a square bamboo called Chimomobambusa quadrangularis.


However the cultivation of bamboo into unusual forms by means of restrictive collars and battens has a long history in Japanese Crafts.
