Re: Old Bamboo Rods
PJ.... where you start is relative to what needs to get done and how involved you want to get.
Some rods might need to be stripped down to the blank and then started over from scratch while others might just need a wipe down with some solvent.
I got a rod right here that I just cleaned up and repaired 2 wraps and now it's just waiting on some varnish
There's another rod in the other room that's completely stripped and waiting for me to get around to a complete re-build
