Working all day, small kids ..... wife. Building bamboo rods, then you have to find the available moments when they appear. There will be many late nights in the workshop. Friday night is such a night. After a delicious meal with the family and some wine with my wife. The kids are finally asleep and the wife has fallen asleep in front of the television......hard week at work. A cold one, some good music on the headphones, then it's time to do some work with the glued bamboo strips.

It's time to remove the thread after the gluing.

The Morgan strips ready and the Pezon Michel on it's way.

Next step is getting the strips ready for the preliminary form.
