Our new Tiki Dojo pergola

There is an old adage that claims 'one can't build structural elements with bamboo'.

Our new Tiki Dojo directly challenges this adage.

10 foot tall and 5 inch wide bamboo poles support this simple shade structure in the backyard.

It's everything I ever wanted.

The bar top is coated with nine layers of marine spar varnish. 

If you look closely, you can see my old tiller from the Alize sailboat in the background. I placed a brand new tiller on the boat before I sold her off to a new soul in La Paz.
