During a 2 month period March to May this year I built 80+ cylinder shells from scratch using traditional construction techniques for a rocket festival display near to my workshop in Sakgeow Thailand where i run my Pyro Holiday School.
I made videos of almost all the work I did stage by stage for anyone interested in making cylinder shells.
2 videos showing the finished shells and the show itself. These were all cylinders. I don't make ball shells
For anyone interested in seeing how these shells were made here are a few clips showing some of the construction.
