Most of my cane is salvaged from bamboo blinds and table mats, although they need sorting to separate out the straightest canes. Barbecue skewers provide a thicker alternative.Well Ive made a start and have a few floats finished. Not good enough to show, but good enough for the fish.
I'm buying a small lathe in May, and should be on the road then. I've got plenty of nice cork, and a very kind person has given me some cane for the stems. Balsa from EBay I expect? Yes, is the quality good enough?
But can you use any other materials? Like plants, Teasels, other stuff? I'd like to try some natural wood I could collect, just for experience and fun.
