Rubber Joints for Bamboo Carpentry

Together with ABARI, we have been thinking of different ways to join together bamboo for carpentry. Currently joints are made of carved wood, which can be quite labour intensive to make.

An idea, yet untested, is to create rubber joints that would increase in size under pressure of adjustable bolts and fill in the inner space of bamboo. Fastened this way, the joints can be connected for construction.
