bamboo fenceThis fence enclosure is built to hold a future bamboo garden within a west coast forest.  The fence panels are constructed with salvaged red cedar grapestake pickets with 1 inch bamboo in a wide spacing to allow for visual openness between the forest and the bamboo plants.  The back section of the fence is more solid, with wider cedar pickets and bamboo packed closely together.  The top section of each panels was designed to reflect a traditional Japanese fence, with a small but long roof made from red cedar, supported by two short uprights which also hold two sectins of vertical bamboo.  The natural undulations of the hand split red cedar are apparent throughout the whole fence, from the picks, posts, rails, and the narrow roof sections.
