For several years now, Ive been wanting to make a competition grade River Cane blowgun to get my name up off of the bottom of every competition I join at the Cherokee National Holiday celebrations Labor day weekends in Talequah Oklahoma.
Ive bought a few lesser blowguns there and some pieces of River Cane that had potential but haven't been drilled. I've left the 'contenders' alone for fear of ruining them in the learning process.
I can start playing now because I found five 8' pieces in a garden center for about $11. Most of it is smaller than optimum diameter but I believe I can get two or three good four footers after playing around with the waste material.
Heads up, the package identified it as bamboo but it looks alot more like Cane to me. Brand name is Growers Edge.

I was considering turning a piece of wood on a lathe to look like bamboo, but now I honestly think hand carving is the way to go because those look amazing! Awesome work man!
