Slant-Peg Lashing Joint

This bamboo joint is a slant-peg lashing.

1. A hole is drilled above a node on an upright bamboo pole, so that it passes through the node and comes out below the node on the other side. The exact angle can be adjusted a bit as desired.

2. A long peg is inserted through the slanted hole and will be used as the support for a cross-pole.
3. The lashing is made by starting with a clove hitch.
4. This bamboo lashing was made with a single cord. Separate lashings between the two main bamboo poles and around each point where the peg passes through the upright could be made instead and would probably look neater.
