Hello mates, there's a lot of people I know here.....blowguns are exciting, I've had a couple in the past and I used to blow often. I am with you to learn and to keep on doing. Thanks for this opportunity. Do you think could I make a natural one from a branch of wood? I need to get some information first. Cheers,  Bob.

Welcome to the forum Bob.  I have seen blowguns made from river cane and bamboo.  I think some are made by splitting a fairly straight branch or thin trunk and gauging a half round channel in each piece then putting it bak together.  I think those may be bound with vines or such to hold them.  They may even use a natural sap as a glue.  I have made glue from pine sap with the lint from dryer  filter mixed in.  You melt it for use.  Found it on a bushcraft forum.

Welcome! Like Orcrender, I have seen cane and bamboo used. If anyone could get a limb to work though, its you!

Hi Bob, I concur with everyone, if if can be done with a tree limb you can do it!
