Homemade wooden DPN's
The Boy has agreed to make me sets of wooden DPN's out of dowel rod and I was wondering if anyone else has done this and if they have had good expirences with them? Im afraid of splintering over time, does this happen? Or does anyone know where to find rods of bamboo to make DPN's?
I like the idea of having TB make me my own sets because then I can choose the size and lengths that I want.
Any suggestions would be awesome, thank!

Jess

Did you know that Amy has video on making your own? It's at the bottom of the Basic Techniques and More section.

Lots of people just get wooden dowels from craft stores and hardware stores--they don't need to be bamboo.
