Can I stain or restore the Tonkin bamboo fence panels?
Yes. Bamboo restores itself very well. However, we suggest waiting until the bamboo has weathered before staining. Overtime the waxy cellulose fibers on the surface of the bamboo will wear off. This will allow the bamboo to easily take on the color of the stain.
How do I cut the Tonkin bamboo fence panel?
The best tool to lower the height of a fence panel is a common circular saw with a 140-teeth plywood blade.

Simply cut the wire about two bamboo canes longer than you need, remove the extra canes and wrap the extra wire around the last bamboo cane.

Bamboo does have a natural tendency to crack.
