Noobie here

Brand new to all things wood. Trying to make it into a hobby. Wanted to start with something seemingly simple and carve my own pair of chopsticks out of bamboo.

Can i get carvable bamboo from a local home depot? If so, what kind. And what kind of tools would be best for this?

Any tips and advice is greatly appreciated!!

I've never seen bamboo stock at any local home center. This is the closest thing I think you'll find:
Horizontal Toast 5/8 in. Thick x 5 in. Wide x 38-5/8 in. Length Solid Bamboo Flooring
