Bamboo Bike Trailer
Another bike trailer, made mostly of beautiful bamboo, with a bit of plywood, PU glue, organic ECOS varnish and paint, and some reclaimed netting. This trailer is a fair bit smaller and a lot lighter than my other bike trailers, but it’s still strong enough to carry me in it! The wheels are 20-inch in diameter. The two side panels are illustrated – not quite finished. One side features a green-man gargoyle, eating my wheel! The other side has a female face inspired by the blue-skinned people from the amazing film Avatar – the huntress who says “You is like baby!” when faced with the stupid clumsiness of the humans. The trailer works very well as a hand-cart and stands upright like a sack-truck to take up a smaller amount of space. I am very pleased with it and have fallen in love with bamboo – it’s a fantastic wood – so light but very strong too, and fast-growing. More on this trailer soon, once it’s properly finished. Below are a few more pix.
