I go over the steps from beginning to finish, so take out a pen and paper! I am using western Red Cedar for all components of this bow drill (except the 550 cordage, and the Hawkes Hellion Elite). A sapling makes up the Bow for flexibility, a small limb makes up the Spindle, a split plank makes up the Fire Board, the tinder is made from the bark, even the Fire Pan is made from the Inner Bark.

Difficulty scale:
7/10 Practice makes perfect, and good cardio conditioning is a huge help.
