Bamboo is an excellent resource. It grows very quickly and is therefore both renewable and inexpensive. One way to use bamboo is fencing. Fence panels are made by connecting bamboo poles to each other with wire at the top, middle and bottom. You can make bamboo fences panels yourself or buy them prefabricated, cut them to the desired height and length, then use them in whatever way you choose.
Using bamboo panels as fencing provides privacy and gives your backyard or outdoor area a unique Asian flare or comfy, secluded air. Bamboo stands up well in exterior uses: it's very strong and durable, ages well, weathers naturally, is low in maintenance, resists rotting and has a natural wax coating that repels mildew and insect damage. Also, if you have an old fence already erected, you can simply wire the bamboo panels to it. They're quite lightweight.
Bamboo fence panels can also be used for interior purposes. You can glue or nail them onto walls or furniture to create an eye-catching effect or you can turn them into art. Cut patterns or designs into the panels or decorate them. Treat them with crackle paint, paint them with fun colours, or just let the natural beauty of the wood show with a coat of clear finish to make it glossy and shiny. Then hang, tie or glue on ornamental trinkets such as bits of coloured glass, fabric scraps, feathers, tassels, rope, small mirrors, beads, cord, decorative tiles, wooden or metal carvings, arrowheads, or other effects.
Use your decorated bamboo panel however you like. Attach a couple of hooks and hang it lengthwise or crosswise on a wall. Suspend it vertically from a bedroom, garage, attic, basement or living room ceiling to make a hanging room divider or bolt two panels together with some hinges to make a folding, free-standing divider. Hang the panel horizontally on the ceiling to create an overhead accent piece or lean it against a wall to create a focal point in a room.
