OK, you’ve inspired me. I’ve been racking my brain on how to cover this 5’ section of my tiki bar and I think this is it.

I started by looking through Bamboo Ben’s instagram feed. I’m thinking 2” bamboo A-frame. One of BB’s photos of thatched roof under construction had a home depot bucket, and I used that to determine around 18” spacing on the bamboo frame.

100 board feet of 2” bamboo is $150 from Forever Bamboo. Plus freight to wherever you are. I already have thatching but you can get it there too.

Started sketching.
