Sparked by a comment left by Steve Bags in another thread, I am posting a topic here about where to find wooden/bamboo hoops or material. I would settle for how to make my own using wood or a store that sells bamboo. This is a project I have been working on for almost a year now, and I have had zero luck :(
If anyone in the community could find a source for wooden material to make hoops from I would be eternally grateful!!
Peace, Light, and Love :)
bump* curious as well
have you tried a garden center. they have bamboo stakes for gardening!
Depending on what you are looking for, Braided Grapevine also works as a friend of mine made me one as a gift. Not sure how it was done, other then they took it off the vine while it was soft, and worked it into a circle, letting it dry.
Works rather well, other then the bark is pealing off, but perhaps a varnish or sealant would keep it in place.
i'm also curious about this because I want to find a way to make a round canvas (for painting) and I want to make a round wooden stretcher, but I'm finding out its very difficult, lol
I make Wood Hoops sell and ship them. All cedar construction strong but light. Dance hoops weight just a tiny bit more than polypro. www.woodhulahoop.com PK
I now have Wood dance hoops.. Crazy light weight. They are made of white cedar and are hollow. A 39" hoop is about 10 oz. What is Poly pro? Thanks for the nice comments Francine.
Want! Oh as soon as I get some funds i'll be buying this beautiful hoop.
I didn't know what a polypro weighed actually. funny how sometimes you just don't think of things.
Moodhoops lists below for weights:
So yeah that is crazy light weight! Maybe for this coming xmas I will get an engraved lightweight wood dance weight hula hoop!!
I am going to use my hoop tonight!
Do you have a website?
