Rod Building

Here are some pics of me at work on flaming some culms of bamboo.

 I go in cycles with my building and will focus on 2 or 3 rods at a time. Right now I am working on 3 rods. The shop gets pretty messy when I am in the process of building. After the three rods go out I will take a week or two to clean up the shop and do any ordering that needs to be done.

Here is a picture of what I use to hollow my rods with. It is a Curt Elder hollowing mill.

  1. Can you tell me where you order your Hariki ferrules? I am a rod builder in Ohio and would like to try their ferrules. How do you like them? Thanks
