Hand Drill Materials

The boys and i made a trip to the woods the other day, whilst we were there i decided to pay my favourite Elder tree a visit, why is it my favourite Elder?, well quite simply, the tree has been crowded out by the other trees, the result is the new growth stems grow almost vertically and are therefore fairly straight as they are trying to reach the light.

Pictured to he left are four hand drill spindles i collected and removed the bark from, these are now drying out on top of a radiator in the house, when they have dried, i shall move on to  the next step which will be straightening them out over a flame, as they are bit lumpy bumpy at the moment, these, along with a few others i have here already should see me through for some considerable time to come,
