1st Place Winner – Tony’s exquisite working clock made from Natural Vertical Plywood

– Won with 108 Likes

CB: What drew you to bamboo?
Tony: Natural Bamboo is such a beautiful creation of nature & very interesting to build projects with.

CB: What is unique about your project?
Tony: In this digital age of high-tech gadgets, there is something fascinating & appealing to me about mechanical, analog watches & clocks, especially being made of wood. My father was a Carpenter back in Vietnam & built boats, houses, furniture with old fashion tools such as hammer, chisel, hacksaw. This mechanical clock is “old fashion”, but it has a little high-tech behind the designing CAD process & CNC machined parts.

CB: If you win, what will you build with your Cali Bamboo credit?
Tony: If there is a remote possibility of getting the most votes, I would build more clocks.

 

2nd Place Winner – Dick’s stunning Black Bamboo Fence built for his landscaped yard

– Won with 39 Likes

CB: What drew you to bamboo?
Dick: I have loved Asian landscape and design for decades. Bamboo – both living and as a building material – has always beenan integrial component. As one of the fastest growing grasses, it is used for virtually everything – not unusual to find it being used as building scaffolding in Hong Kong.

CB: What is unique about your project?
Dick: One of my clients was born in Osaka, Japan, so for her it is a reminder of her birthplace.

CB: If you win, what will you build with your Cali Bamboo credit?
Dick: Likely a fence for my own home.

CB: What other ways do you stay green?
Alice: We recycle, repurpose and own a hybrid car.

CB: If you win, what will you build with your Cali Bamboo credit?
