The general design is 2 main rectangles 3.6'x 4' divided into two squares by a horizontal piece. Each rectangle is then joined by a diagonal piece on ether side. The unit should stand about 6' tall 4' wide and 2' deep when extended from the wall and then when not in use collapse against the wall to about 7' tall and about 1/2' deep. The goal is to have more usable space when the device is not needed but still keeping it convenient, sturdy and reliable.

You'll need to cut the bamboo into poles
 +
6 x 3' , 2 x 4', 8 x 3'7"
 +
*Note: Bamboo varies, so measure the diameter of the poles you will join to see how much shorter your short poles should be.
 +
  ex.) If your poles diameter is 2" cut 4" off the long length to give you 3'8"

I recommend gluing the pegs in to the horizontal pieces after seeing that every thing lines up.

Now that it is pretty much done I have a few tips for construction.
