This one is just down the street from me.
Cut off a stalk about twice the diameter of your chalk.

Step 2: Cut a length around 6 inches or 150mm long.

My bread knife was good enough. A hacksaw would be good too. Cut a little down from the joints as they are harder and not hollow at the same diameter.

Step 3: Split Bamboo down the sides just a little way.

Maybe 1-2 inches down the side. This will allow the bamboo to open up just enough to allow the chalk to be held in the bamboo.

Step 4: Insert Chalk.

voila !

Step 5: Write love notes and shopping lists on a tablet.
