SYSTAINER OF BAMBOO
« on: January 08, 2018, 06:39 PM »
Hi all. As a new member I' like to say "Hallo" and show you one of my projects. An Ikea systainer. I allways liked to play with Ikea's farniture, and this one is made of 5 bamboo cutting boards. It's only a concept, and I'll try different methods later. Don't judge me too hard, I have no theoretical background in carpentry.
Also pardon for my english, it's my third linguage.

Nice!  Hmmm, custom height Systainers are an option when you make your own.  [scratch chin]

Welcome to the FOG. Even if you try a forth language that is still a great job.

@KongKirill I spent many a day (actually many a nite) working on fly and casting rods made of bamboo way back even before i turned 39. I have worked with the raw canes as well.  I found the material to be subject to very long and very sharp splinters if broken. Since the long ago days I have seen bamboo used for paneling and flooring and wondered how it really stands up to traffic and abrasive wear. I have been assured it stands a lot of abuse. I know it is very strong, as I have seen it used for scaffolding back in the days of Japan's recovery from the ravages of war. The Japanese used it for scaffolding uprights, ledgers and even planking. The whole scaffolding were not nailed or bolted together, but everything was lashed together with ropes and it was like working on trampolines with a whole lot of bouncing. This is the first time I have seen it used for tool box. The Systainer should stand a lot of wear, and tear.

Hi, @Tinker . I thought it was interesting to try the bamboo. It was easy to work with. On the one hand it was very soft, easy to handle with the chizel. Both along and across the fibers. But at the same time it was resistant to hack and other unwanted damage. AND it smells good, it smells like a holiday :)
