Welcome to my virtual exhibit of handmade bamboo trellises. Move your cursor over the tiny thumbnail images at the left to see a larger view.

I harvest green bamboo, when it's most pliable. I then trim the side branches, leaving little "hooks" that are great for tying vines. I sketch out designs, and also sometimes I just let the bamboo tell me what to do. Bamboo can't be nailed, so every join is tied with a Japanese knot. I use a waxed cord that won't rot.

I can make custom trellises in any size to fit a particular space. I can also make them in various degress of stoutness, depending on what plants they will be used for - delicate vines like Morning Glory, or heavier Roses or Honeysuckle.

Prices start at $49.
