It's all about the Frapping - Special Order
"Frapping" is a term that means to bind something tightly, and is a critical step in lashing things together. In this case it was a large number of our Desktop Tubes! Steps 13-15 in this AnimatedKnots.com Square Lashing will help you visualize frappings. They are the critical step in securing lashings as a poor frapping job inevitably leads to the lashing coming loose.
I recently had a special order for a large number of our Desktop Tubes. I turned a raw pile of bamboo into 175 sets, all bombproof and without a drop of glue! All thanks... to frapping! It's quite something to see over 500 tubes of bamboo all cut and bound in sets of 3 different sizes.
These pictures have inspired me to work on a future DomesticBamboo.com product, Mason Bee Condos- stay tuned!
