Yes, very interesting video (part 1) of making a dugout canoe.  The only person I know who has done that, has done so with his own hand-made axes--Larry Kinsella, of Illinois.  I've mentioned his name before, as he did a demo on fire starting using the bow and drill, and he got fire within 30 seconds.  It was amazing.

He has made axes of all sizes and shapes, although shape is fairly standard.  He showed us pictures of the huge dugout canoe he (and others?) made, using just his handmade axe(s).  Now, though, I wonder if he omitted the discussion of using the small fires intermittently, where you hack away a while, then burn, then hack, then burn, etc.  One thing Kinsella said in his axe demo was that his stone axes will break if used on old wood, and as such they are great for green wood, but never for aged wood.

So, it makes one wonder if Native peoples in America also used the fire intermittently, in making their dugout canoes?

Clearly another wonderful source. I had not forgotten you mentioning him.

And now remembering seeing him in my mind, he only used his hands and the drill on the "bottomboard".  I'm not sure of the name of the board (maybe I've forgotten?) but some will use a sort of bow with a string that curls around the vertical stick, which sits in an indentation in the bottom board.  But Kinsella did not need the string around the stick.

I can see him in my mind, and his hands were holding the vertical stick, with its bottom end positioned in the indentation in bottom board, and he "twirled" the stick vertically, back and forth, really fast, I mean really fast, between his palms, to get the first started.
