Think you can make a dread bead out of bamboo? Has it been done before?

I want to use dried out bamboo to make a dread bead but I've never worked with it before. Would it be hard to hollow out or is it do able?

bamboo is already hollow, my hubby makes beads for us all the time out of it, has for the past 10+ yrs. It hardens as it ages and after cutting it down you can carve designs into it.

Yea bamboo is awesome I use it to make gauges for my ears cause at my size they can get a littl.e expensive for organic materials.
