DejaVoodoo, I think you will have a hard time getting the home improvement store to cut that PVC for you, but no harm in asking


Here's another PVC faux bamboo technique with a little more dimension at the knuckles. Posted by TC's Kewlava (who hasn't been around in a while). The PVC is heated with a torch and then compressed so the knuckle bulges out. This is a picture of unfinished "shamboo" but it shows the bunge well
