Make your first Bow Drill ember using as many cheats as you need to... then improve your skills.

Yesterday we used a 2x4 to make a Bow Drill Set, got a branch from the woods for the Bow, and used my bearing block with a metal bearing in it to make a friction fire. Today, let's go to Lowe's and pick out a "White Wood" 2x2. I used it for a bow, bearing block lubed with WD40, spindle, and fire board.
I don't know any expert in Bow Drill or Hand Drill that didn't make their first ember with some form of cheat or cheats. As they/we practiced more, over time, we chose how far we wanted to go with it... h... how much we wanted to improve our skills. If you've struggle with Bow Drill repeatedly or if you're wanting to try it for the first time, use all the cheats you need to get that first ember. Future embers will come much easier...
