Bamboo fence panel for extra privacy

This bamboo panelling with a rose mahogany stain brings a touch of Bali to this backyard and enlivens the fence.





The project


I installed this bamboo panelling for extra privacy. I stained with a rose mahogany stain and added a chain link feature.


I drilled a pilot hole through the bamboo first to avoid it splitting, and then placed a 75mm galvanised screw through that hole and continued fixing it to the top and bottom rail of the fence. It's quite easy. I found it helpful to run a string line pulled tight to make sure it was level.

Great fencing alternative @Shannon ! 

The rose stain looks great with your red brick home as well. Would love to see what it looks like at night with your fairy light fencing on!
