"Building Bamboo Fences" has all the information you will need to build your own bamboo fence. Additionally, Mr. Yoshida has included a brief history of bamboo fences in Japan, a complete glossary of terms and many beautiful color photographs for inspiration. Fence diagrams range from simple see-through fences to more complex bamboo screening fences. The diagrams, techniques, and instructions for building different types of bamboo fences are clear, complete, easy to follow and even include tips on how to correct any problems you may have in construction. I turned an open work bamboo fence diagram into a trellis for my climbing rose bush in one afternoon. Whether you are looking to build simple edgings for garden paths or a full-screen fence - this is the book to use.

This is a Great book for bamboo lovers. Especially if you have access to the waste branches .I can't wait to do more with those! The more ideas here you try....the more the fever grips you.....Possiblities endless!

Lots of pictures with great informative diagrams, inspiratinal ideas and plans as well as info on how to harvest and preserve poles. I like to fire harden....but watch out for explosions!

One of the 2 best bamboo books I have seen. The other one is in Spanish

Beautifully Illustrated book on building bamboo fences 12 janvier 2000
Par Henry E. Raduazo - Publié sur
Format: JP Oversized
"Building Bamboo Fences" is beautifully illustrated with 31 pages of full color pictures and a fairly decent how to section about how to build them. One thing I do not like though is the books organization. There is a section of pictures and a section on history and a section illustrating construction technique. The book would be much more readable if these sections were mixed (i.e. the color pictures should be near the relivant history and how to illustrations. There needs to be a section discussing the different varieties and how and where to grow them. Bamboo grows nearly anywhere in the US, but tropical varieties are more rot resistant. There also needs to be a section on tools. Thin bladed knives are useless to split bamboo, but you would not get this from reading the book. And, where do you get tools and bamboo cultivars? It is not in the book...

Quirky, but thorough. 3 juillet 2013

136 pages, not including the glossary. The first 16 pages are a history of Japanese fencing, and the terms used for each type of fence. The next 32 pages are color photos of the various fences in real world scenarios. Some are incredibly impressive! Then 6 pages of knots, terms, and the basics of working with bamboo. Then 11 types of fence, with diagrams. Naturally, the Japanese language includes about a bazillion variations of bamboo fence, and the terms used to describe them. We'll get to that in a moment. Each section is laid out with the first page showing a drawing of the fence type, a brief description, and then 4-10 pages of building diagrams, which sometimes include b&w photos. Some are simple, and some are VERY intricate. They're almost all beautiful. The fact that it includes so many diagrams is a nice touch for us Westerners, and the one thing that makes the book useful to the guy or gal who wants to actually BUILD a fence, instead of learning about them. However... When reading through the diagrams, the author (who is Japanese) constantly uses the Japanese name of the various parts of the fence, which sometimes frustrates me, since I have to go back to the front of the book and look it up. Yes, there's a diagram, but I still like to know exactly what's going on, to eliminate any errors. It's certainly not the authors fault that he uses correct terminology- it's my fault for being American enough to find it annoying to have to constantly backtrack- not only to the preliminary pages describing the terms, but to the 6 pages of knot descriptions. Some of the knots are crazy, and even with repetition, I sometimes ask myself if I'm doing them right. It's probably something that most people won't mind, but I get impatient with projects, and want them done. Weird for a guy building Japanese bamboo fences, huh? Anyway, it's a VERY thorough book, and certainly worthy of your consideration if you have any interest in constructing one of the 11 beautiful types of fences here. Bear in mind, too, that the author says that the lifespan of bamboo is around 5 years. That may deter someone from undertaking the task of constructing one, but it's actually pretty fun, and the beauty of the process, not to mention the finished fence, has been known to have a calming effect. Even on an impatient American.

I like this book. 6 avril 2009
Par Eric - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is what I was expecting... nice photos of fence styles, historic info, and how to info. I am excited to get some bamboo and start building my gate or fence! I did not give the book 5 stars because I wish there had been more information about "how to work with bamboo" and "descriptions of the different species" used.
