Bamboo Bow Drill

While i was messing around yesterday, i made myself a couple of new Bow Drill bows, the difference being, these are made from bamboo, i figured they would be a little different to the normal bow you see being used.

I made two, the top one in the photo was made from dry bamboo and works well, although i did have to add a rubber sleeve to the hand grip area to stop the string sliding around so much on the the very smooth surface, the other one i made from green bamboo and I'm just waiting for that to dry a little before i can move onto the next stage and burn some holes into it for the cordage.
