Splitting bamboo is an awesome way to shaping bamboo for your design and decor. If you’re planning to splitting bamboo for use in your home or office then there are a few important steps you have to take. First, before splitting bamboo you have to prepare the bamboo properly, make sure the soil is firm and protect the base from being scratched. Splitting bamboo plants can be quite delicate so you have to handle it carefully and only if you think it can handle it. There are bamboo splitting machines available but they can make the task even harder!
When splitting bamboo for the best split possible, you need to be as precise as you possibly can. Bamboo is very forgiving and has a great capacity for growth but, once it is exposed to natural or artificial conditions and is less well protected then it can suddenly become quite sensitive and give out quickly! You also have to consider the type of wood that you’re going to use for splitting bamboo stakes and planks that are light in weight can make the process easier. Also, use a sharp tool so the strip will come out neat and straight.
For splitting bamboo roots into thinner strips you need to ensure that the board is cut straight. Ensure that the angle is correct as you can easily cut the board at an angle that will cause the strip to bulge out and appear uneven. Once you have made the board level, you can then use a sharpened bamboo chopstick to remove the branched side of the board. If you look straight at the board while splitting bamboo with a chopstick you should see two parallel lines going down the board and these are the branched side strips you need to cut.
Splitting Bamboo Clumps
Make sure you take extra care when splitting bamboo clumps with a bamboo chopstick. It’s easy to grab the wrong end and make a slash as you try to split the board. You don’t want to cut off any of the vital fire! Once the branched side of the board has been removed, hold your knife away from the board as you proceed to move the board alongside the board you just cut along with a slight angle to ensure that the strip sticks up against the fence. You then need to push the strip along the fence as far as you can until it is level with your desired cut surface. When you get to the surface where you want the splitting bamboo to sit, carefully get in the cut to spread the length of the strip evenly.
If you are looking for something a little more professional then we have the clumping and splitting bamboo and bending method! Clumping bamboo does exactly what its name suggests. After splitting bamboo into strips and making the strip flat, you then need to place it onto the baseboard where you are going to lay the clumping soil. This will ensure that all of the strips are firmly held in place and prevents any air pockets or gaps from forming which would allow moisture into the core.
There are two different ways you can do splitting bamboo. The first method requires an ax and a cleaver ready with you. With either tool, cut along the bamboo strips and into the exact center. Do this until the strip completely covers the entire chip. Then, using either a wedge or a slotted stick, gently push the chip towards the edge of the cutting area until it is flush with the ground.Explore full detailed information & find about Splitting Bamboo Plants,
