Bamboo Yoke
(using a larks head truss)
by MorTis

One of the easiest want to tie bamboo to limbs is by using a larks head truss (There is another name for this, and I cant remember it at the moment). around the limb and bamboo rod. This works great for a bamboo yoke. You can also use other cylindrical items instead of bamboo, such as wooden doll rods, or PVC piping, etc.

Step 1: Piece a 5-6' bamboo rod on your victims shoulders, and have them spread there arms up against it, and hold it up.

Step 2: I usually will do a boola-boola , or a banded cinch like the frog legs to the limb and bamboo.

Step 3: Then pull the tails down the bamboo about every 6", hold the rope and hold it in place there.

Step 4: Make a 90° angle with the rope, wrap it around the limb and bamboo back to the 90° twist

Step 5: Pull the tails under the inside of the twist to lock it in place by making another 90° twist over the first towards the outside.

Step 6: And repeat the as many times as you need every 6" or so.

Step 7: Finish it off by doing a couple larks heads in a band, and tie off with a half hitch or by doing another boola-boola or banded cinch.
