Title

Kite Making: Tim Sao loops two bamboo dowels, 1987

Description

Earlier, Tim Sao bored holes into the kite's Tail Piece with a handmade tool made of a pointed steel shaft fit into a round wooden handle which he spun between his hands to drill the holes into the Tail Piece. In this picture you can see that two thin bamboo dowels have been inserted into these holes and secured at the other end by shaving them so thin that Tim was able to loop them over the Bottom Wing then bind them with wire. Except for the Aik the basic structure of the frame is now complete.
