How to make a bamboo clothes ladder

Making a bamboo clothes ladder is a great way to add some extra storage space to your home. Plus, it’s a unique and stylish way to display your clothes. Here’s how to make your own bamboo clothes ladder:

1. Measure

Measure the smaller bamboo sticks and cut them in half so that you have 6 small sticks. Use the saw to cut off any ends which are not flat.

2. Sandpaper the edges

Use sandpaper to smoothen any rough edges.

3. Connect the poles

Then measure out your poles so your cross poles are spaced evenly over your tall poles. I made mine approximately 30cm apart  Try to be as accurate as possible.


4. Make square lashings

Use the twine to make square lashings to fasten the cross poles with the uprights as tightly as possible.

I found this excellent page on how to tie the knot: Square Lashing

As you can see from the photo, I added a cross in the middle. This cross is not necessary for the ladder to be solid. I did it for decorative purposes only.
If you are following the page on how to tie a square lashing, between steps 12 and 13, I wound my twine diagonally across the top of the small pole, then straight under the upright a couple of times to get the effect.

Lash each cross pole onto the uprights, the same distance apart. Make sure your uprights are parallel.


5. Move your cross poles to straighten up

Once your work is complete, you may need to move some of your cross poles if they are not quite in the right place. It is easier to move them horizontally than vertically.

Simply hold the upright tight, and maneuver the cross pole to where you want it. You may have to wiggle it a little. Once you’re done, you can lean it against a wall and hang things on it.

Unless you use extremely strong materials and your lashings are fantastic, please don’t attempt to actually use them as a ladder.
