Bamboo is a brilliant material -  it's still used as scaffolding for building in the far east, but can also be split down to make thin flexible spars for fighting kites.
In this case I've split it extra thin (less than 0.5mm) to make the reefing spars on the sail for this Junk. The masts are bamboo as well, made from cocktail sticks.
