Default Advice needed

Anyone have any suggestions on mounting a gig head to bamboo. I've always used dowels. I can cut the bamboo to fit snug in the gig. Gig head isn't tapered. Can I attach straight to bamboo or do I need to make some kindle adapter? Thanks in advance

My gig heads aren't tapered either so I just cut the the bamboo right above the joint so I had a hollow section to work with.
Then I used a short pc. of Fir dowel that I cut down on one end so it would fit in the bamboo. Then I used a good 2 part epoxy to glue it in the bamboo. To make it stronger I wrapped the outside of that section of bamboo with nylon string while the epoxy was still wet. Been using it for 4-5 yrs now without any problems.
