Long day in shop

Spent the day doing rough work. Splitting, flaming, sanding nodes, pressing nodes. Its not the most exciting part of making a rod but I like it. All these preliminary steps, taking a raw culm to squared and staggered butt and tip strips is the laying of a foundation. Some pics from the day.
