I made this out of bamboo, a wood I have never used before. There are some really cool types of bamboo…this one is a type of end grain laminated board. Thanks go to LumberJock Eric Penewell from BambooHardwoods who sent over some boards for me to try out. Neat stuff.

Here's the video to accompany the stand.

I guess this what their always talking about “how’s it hanging” never would have guessed. Cool stand and video.

definitely a favorite and a must do…but probably not in the bamboo.

Never had a bamboo banana before, what do they taste like? Seriously this is a fine looking project.

Looks great, Steve. I’ve actually been thinking of making one of these, even before I saw yours.

very nice. just don’t throw the peel the floor, it could be dangerous! LOL luv your video.. it gave me a flashback o my childhood when I used to come home from school, and watch Captain Penny. He would have clips called “Who’s the Funny Man”......... this was in the Cleveland, OH area back in the ‘60’s. GR8 memory jar. thnx

That is wonderful, Steve. It makes me think of a swan’s neck, especially in the second photo. I would be tempted to add an eye and a touch of coloring on the “beak”.

Thanks for this and the great video.
