Bowdrill wood

I like cedar, sycamore, and silver bell the best. I tend to put a little too much pressure with softer woods such as willow or bass wood, however these are both good options. I also have had a lot of success with Juniper which should grow in your region if your in the lower part of the state. If your not getting a coal it is very possible it is your technique rather than the wood. having good dry wood that has not begin to break down or show signs of dry rot is sufficient as long as it is not too hard. here's a video I've done about bow drilling please check it out and ask any questions you may have. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmglRfNLc3U
