The power company was cutting back trees along the Pottery Highway. About a half mile from our house is giant stand of bamboo. Jeff stopped and asked the tree guys if he could collect some of the bamboo they cut. The said, "Help yourself!".
Jeff went right to work creating tea and water scoops of various sizes. He also made us some cool new chopsticks. He designed the chopsticks after some that he used in Japan. They are square and much easier to use than the round ones. I don't seem to have a photo of the chopsticks.
He is training the handles to stay in position. Once set, he plans to re-wrap them with copper wire in a neater fashion.
