Title

Kite Making: Soeun Tim shaves down a bamboo splint, 1987

Description

Soeun Tim shaves down a bamboo splint with a knife by pulling it across the knife blade while using his finger as a guide; similar to the action of a plane. This splint and another will be used to make the Top Wing of the kite. Earlier they were split from the pole with a large kitchen knife pounded with a hammer. The hacksaw to his right was used to cut the splint to the correct length.
