Bamboo Rain Stick
Hey, I am thinking about making a natural rain stick out of bamboo, but I don't know exactly where I should go to pick up a hollow bamboo pole to make the body of. I found a lot of sites online that I can buy bales of 10+ poles, but honestly I only need 10 feet or so to tinker around with. I am thinking a diameter of 2 or 3 inches would be good.
Also, any ideas on what to use for the nails/screws inside the pole? I was thinking of finding some cactus needles or wooden pegs/screws, but I don't know where I could find enough. Any brainstorming ideas?
The most important thing for me is how to find these bamboo poles. Any help or ideas would be awesome, thanks!
