I have used the empty laminating tubes two different ways:

1. Cut them in 12" lengths or in thirds or quarters (whatever you like) and you have lummi sticks, Maori sticks. Very strong and durable. The principal from one of my buildings has been giving me the empty rolls from his fax machine, and they are also very strong and make good sticks.
2. Didjeridu - I waxed the ends of them and they work fine, just fine. Don't leave them in your car with the sun shining on them... the wax melts!
