You need a piece of monkey bone tied to a stick with a piece of rattan :)


I remember an old Attenborough film which made the process look even more time consuming

Excellent, I’ve been meaning to slaughter the monkey for some time, just needed a good excuse. It’s a vile thing, once threw its own poo at me in temper. :D :D

I’m not going to bother with hollowing at all, too much faff, I’m running a thin twin cable down the outside and binding the bamboo with raffia to disguise it. It’ll look rustic and jungly enough I reckon.
