How to make a broom (in Thailand)

Postby gavesako » Wed Oct 03, 2012 1:12 pm

In the forest monasteries monks have to sweep large areas with long bamboo brooms the end of which is made of the coconut palm.
Nicely shown on pictures:

I finnaly learned to make brooms last year, and I am glad I did!

Before I was depended on other people, but now I am self-reliant. In big monasteries like Wat Marp Jan there is an endless demand for brooms, so I can make few for others... Paying back my debt of brooms to forest monasteries...

I think I am in the + side already.

Some monastery use wire instead of nylon.

It's faster, however it's harder to find out some wire.
