  • Hawaiian Tiki Mask

Because Hawaiians worshipped in their homes as well as in temples, according to Encyclopedia.com carved masks and idols designed to resemble the gods could be found in most public and private places throughout the islands. In fact, although the culture's religion recognized many gods and demigods, the National Park Service says that it was only the worship of the four main deities that was done publicly. Worship of the lesser gods was considered private business.

  • Bamboo Poles - Stronger Than You Think

    Bamboo has long been proven to be a reliable building material. It’s been used as an alternative to wood for thousands of years and it has the durability to last many, many years and withstand the elements - but just how strong is bamboo?

    How Strong is Bamboo?

    Bamboo can easily be underestimated because of the fact that at first impression it is not as impressive in size as a tree and wouldn’t seem to be as strong as steel. Additionally, you probably wouldn’t believe that bamboo could stack up against concrete or would be comparable to a material like the futuristic and strong carbon fiber. However, bamboo has some impressive qualities that allow it to keep up with and even exceed the traits of these popular building materials.

    Bamboo is a very light building material, yet it is three times stronger than timber. When compared with steel, bamboo has a greater tensile strength, meaning it can withstand more tension or stretching pressure before breaking. When facing off against one of the hardest materials in the world, concrete, bamboo withstands compression better.

    If all of that wasn’t enough, bamboo accomplishes all of this while being far more flexible and malleable than any of the other materials we just mentioned and maintains the same strength as carbon fiber, but at a fraction of the cost! Bamboo is an amazing resource that offers incredible strength and durability benefits while being one of the most renewable building materials on the planet. Bamboo grows over eight times faster than trees and is most certainly easier to harvest than it is to creating steel or concrete.

    The Amazing Benefits of Bamboo

    Bamboo has proven itself to be a very strong and reliable building material throughout history, and the science supports this claim. Whenever bamboo faces off against other staples in the building material industry, bamboo consistently competes with and outperforms their strength and flexibility traits.

    When thinking about the projects around your own home, there is simply no other material on earth that can offer the immense strength and durability of bamboo at the same price. Furthermore, no resource that can boast the same reliability is nearly as renewable and eco-friendly as bamboo. Bamboo is one of Earth’s greatest resources and is a wonderful alternative to many of the building materials that most of us would think couldn’t be replaced!

    Take Advantage of the Strength of Bamboo

    For your next DIY project, take advantage of the amazing benefits of bamboo and experience the cost-effective strength, durability, and eco-friendliness that you won’t find in any other material.
