Secrets of Bowdrill Success (Black & White)



The most comprehensive book on Bowdrill, with over 150 pages of instruction, and over 200 photos to guide you on your path to Bowdrill success.

Bowdrill is not that hard — it’s actually pretty easy. Once you understand the Secrets and the Science behind the skill, you too will be able to make a bowdrill coal virtually every single time. Bowdrill is both Reliable and Consistent, and in spite of what you may have seen on TV, and when done properly it doesn’t take a lot of strength, effort or energy.

Learn how to size your entire kit to YOU, how to choose the right diameter of spindle, how to read what your dust is telling you, how to create a coal with very little effort, and much more. When you understand both HOW and WHY bowdrill works you will also understand what goes wrong when it doesn’t, and how to FIX it!

Natural vs. nylon cordage, kits made off-the-landscape or from purchased lumber, the anatomy of a coal as it comes to life, photos and descriptions of exactly how to carve your notch, two-stick and notchless fireboards, step-by-step instructions on proper form and how to make a coal… all of this and more are explained in detail in the comprehensive guide to Simple, Reliable and Consistent Bowdrill, Every Single Time.
