Yeah, dumb idea right.

But I have a hankering to build a bamboo rod and want to do it from scratch, from the forms (wood) to the binder to the finished rod. I have some woodworking experience having built a few pieces of furniture, cabinets and some other things, like rooms. Never worked with bamboo though, so there is also that challenge.

I have been reading through sites on building both rods and the forms, so I have a fair idea of what I might be getting into. And I an sure there are things not in those sites that I need to know and don't.

So, anyone with experience, and I know you are out there, with some heads up, beware of this, watch out for that, or other stuff you know I need to know?
