Bamboo Rod Building Friday You tube Video of a Perfect Planing Technique

John Rivera has the touch.  The perfect touch, with the walk.  It isn’t easy to plane bamboo strips into perfect triangles, but Rivera has ….the touch.  Watch the You tube video below, and see, and hear, the perfect pitch of planing out a strip for a bamboo fly rod at Raine Hollowbuilt Fly Rods.  When the plane iron is sharp, the strips are held correctly, and the student building the bamboo fly rod are in unison, the shavings are perfect!
