Hey All, Long time reader,First time poster... Anyway, I'm building a small tiki bar and need a small amount of bamboo to finish - 12) 1" x 3' halves. My question is will companies ship such a small amount? I thought about buying torches cutting off the top and splitting myself. Now I can't find those since it's winter and I'm in Philly. Any suggestions would be great and I'll post pics when it's complete. Hopefully before New Years Eve. Thanks, Deane

Try www.displayandcostume.com you can buy bamboo by the individual pole there. Select "party" on the left hand side, then click "Hawaiian" under themed parties. 1" poles 8ft long are $2.65. Also their thatching for tiki bar roofs is excellent.

deane13,

I'm in Ohio and I got a bunch of bamboo at a place called Crafts 2000. Do you have these in Philly yet?

I bought bamboo at our local garden center. Not the best quality ad a lot of it is unevenly split or mildewed, but there were a few good pieces. Home centers usually have it in their garden depts too.

We have Micheal's here, I'll try it. I thought I hit the jackpot on monday when I called some nursery's and one had them for garden stakes. When I got there they were painted dark green. Oh well! I did get it built last friday, I just need the final touches, (bamboo,stools, mask etc.). The funniest part was the usual crew came over for our weekly rum-drenched Friday nights and all stood around the bar for hours with plenty of couches around. It's funny when you find yourself more comfortable standing at a bar than sitting on a couch!

Hale Tiki,

I'm in Springfield, pretty much in the middle of Ohio halfway between Dayton and Columbus.
