Curing bamboo

Bamboo is susceptible to mould and bugs if left untreated so I’m planning on following this procedure for curing the bamboo, which basically involves soaking it in borax and boric acid solution for 2 weeks. After this I’ll dry the bamboo for a few months and periodically check to see if it’s cracking or not. Apparently cracking is the main problem with bamboo frames!
