Rod Making Class Wednesday Redux

There was a lot going on this past Wednesday when it came to rodmaking! Here are some more images of Wednesdays rod making class:

By late afternoon, Luke and Jim had started to get the strips of their rods down to final dimensions.

Wednesday was indeed a long day during this week of rod building.   Both students learned the complex art of straightening and pressing nodes the Garrison way.  No shortcuts here.  Just learning the artisan’s craft.
