Video Transcription

hey guys i'm lily and today I'm by the riverside and i just found this dead elder trap here and i want to use it for a bow drill set because i heard that the wood is great for it this is a great find now let's go to the camp the spindle is not perfect because it has this groove here which is natural with alder wood but i think it will work the notch is ready and as always I have made this air went into the notch so that the coke or the dust gets a little bit more air and can ignite more easily damn it


I was a little bit clumsy today because I kicked the amber odd but it still worked I was lucky yeah guys I want to thank you for watching I'm going to stay a little bit longer and enjoy the sun at my private beach and yeah if you want to see out of friction fire methods check out these videos here at the sides follow me on Facebook Twitter and Instagram and subscribe to my channel if you want to see more stay tuned to the next time
