maybe you could tightly bind a drill bit to a long stick and slowly drill your way through I cant use very many power tools either

bamboo might work,so ill try it.i got sick of looking at it,and i wanted something more natural.i wanted to put a nail in the end of a dowel and shove it through the bamboo to break the seals.i dont have access to most powertools cuz im 11.thanks for tryin to help
yeah, using bamboo and putting a pipe on the inside would do great. You mean your 13, right ;)

Do you really not want to use pipe? or are you just sick of looking at it? If it is the latar then perhaps you might want to try guyfrom7up's idea of the bamboo... Yet instead of spending hours perfecting the inside of the bamboo. I would roughly hollow it out then insert a aluminium tube.... Using epoxy or resin to seal the ends.... If done correctly you shouldn't be able to tell there is tube inside.... Advantages of a prefab almost perfect tube with the attraction of a natural bamboo chassis... Can I ask, do you use a mouth piece on your current blowgun? or reduction's for extra compression? ;)

maybe using bamboo and drillling through the seams? Using a metal lathe you could hollow out dowel rods, I've done that before.
