Day 8 - Planing The Butt Section Into Triangular Strips

Planed 6 strips of the butt section into triangular strips.
Very tough, especially with an injured finger.

First cut. Never use your fingers to test if the bamboo is smooth.

Second cut. Hold very firmly when planing bamboo strips. Otherwise the plane got stuck at the node and move the bamboo strip. It will cut your fingers again.

Third cut. Hold the strip firmly. Yes. Must be very very firm. Otherwise you'll get cut again and again.
