How to make a thung chai

My reading group read about thung chai which are Vietnamese fishing boats. I have written instruction on how they are made.

1.Cut long green bamboo

2.then scrape the outer skin of the banboo

3.slice the poles into thin slats

4. dip it in water to make it soft

5. strech the bamboo slats over a basket shaped mould

6. then they pull the bamboo tight to make it a round shape

7.then they put more bamboo around and pull it tight
