Hand Drill

Well, as mentioned in my post yesterday about the Bow Drill, it was time to rekindle the Hand Drill skills today as Ive not practiced this technique for a little while.

So i grabbed the hand drill bag, pulled out a Clematis Hearth & an Elder drill and got spinning, the result sore hands, a pile of dust, a sweaty brow and no ember, having not practiced this method for a little while, i need to re harden my hands as they were not quite as hand drill hardened as i thought they were, so daily practice it is from now on until the hands have hardened up again, wont take long as the callouses are already there, they just need building up a bit.
