Anybody know of a US source for some Whangee "bamboo"?

Looking for diameters between 3/4" and 1 1/8" for some upcoming projects..

How about some examples of what can be done with this? What preparation keeps it from splintering? Are specific varieties recommended? What kind of finish is recommended? Would a sealer even penetrate bamboo?

I am uncertain, but would imagine that it can be treated and sealed quite easily with a penetrating finish. It was and still is a very popular wood for canes and umbrella handles.

Let you know once it is in hand, and I have worked with it a bit.

Thanks, I think this is a great idea.
