Maybe experiment together with hot curing processes over a campfire. Definitely keep us informed. I am loving all the photos and experiments with new materials.
Turtlelady--That sounds like a blast and a personal thanks to you and everyone else for the contributions in this great post!!!
BTW I used a 14 foot bamboo crossbar and..... FAIL!!! It was not rigid enough and I was slowly let down to the ground so I went and bought a fence rail... Maybe because it was just cut.
