alright got my plane will build a roughplaning form soon, got a torch a splitting knife. and today ordered that bamboo rod sample pack from goldenwitch. my plan is to take it step by step and buy or build tools as needed to limit the time if i decide that i suck at this and do not want to continue. i am excited though to get the grass and start mangling it clapping.gif

don't kid yourself pat, your hooked and there is no turning back. as soon as you hear that first crack when you check split your culms, well lets just say, you sold your soul. keep it simple and as Harry said, ask questions...

Sweet Pat,

I'm right behind you, finished carving out my rough planing form, now have to get some cane and have at it. Going to make a trip out to Demarest in NJ.

Double check that address. My understanding is that Demerest has packed up shop and moved to Cincinnati. Details:

P.O. Box 43091
Cincinnati, Ohio 45243-0091
U. S. A.
Tele: 513-407-6346
Fax: 513-297-5966

Thanks for the heads up. Google still has their address in NJ, but I'll look further into it. I'm hoping your wrong, but you may have saved me a trip.

Thanks,

Just something I do for fun. For years while we were dating, my wife thought that I was nuts. She's finally starting to come around on this whole "hobby". I think that she's come to realize that her husband can be into a lot worse things than hiking through mountains to catch fish. Although, the 'boo does open a ton of new possibilities with a blowtorch.
