mounting poles on top of concrete

Postby lefty16 » Sat Nov 12, 2011 2:14 am

I'm building a large canopy using bamboo poles to cover my patio area. My question is what is the best way to mount the round poles to the concrete? I want to insure the poles will not wander on the concrete. Is there any fixtures similar to those used with 4x4 posts?

Simply Build It

you could manufacture or have it manufactured, a square pre holed plate and a steel pole welded to it.Then insert the bamboo into the steel and drill and bolt the bamboo to the steel,the the square plate can be fixed to the concrete.
