I read once (somewhere in my distant past) that a Japanese bamboo flute maker once recomended .., to get a good shine on a bamboo flute that the method is to flame another piece of boo and use the juice that comes out as a polishing agent and has a permanent result on the flute.

Has anybody done this on their rod/s instead of spar or oil???

Most interesting

Greetings to all.

I flamed some pseudosasa (arundinaria) gigantea once.  It's a close cousin to our beloved Tonkin bamboo.  That bamboo oozed an oil that left a hard and lustrous coat on the outer surfaces.  Instead of making a rod from that piece, I made a frame for a bathroom mirror.
