Hi everyone. I'm working exclusively with bamboo poles and would like to use my router to create some lamps from it.

What would be your advice to create a jig that gives me the possibility to maintain the bamboo and the possibility to create vertical or horizontal holes like the image below.

Thanks a lot for your ideas!

I would use a table mounted router and a double fence, one on each side of the bamboo. You can mark the start and stop points for each opening on the fence. Put a strip of tape on the fence to mark stop and start points. Not sure what bit I'd use though.

Welcome to the forum, Julien.
Tom's idea is a good one, but you can use a mortising jig if you made one...
