Wow! That's pretty fancy!

Yeah - as a kid, I used to build bamboo rods and wrap them using a cardboard box with v-notches cut in the ends, padded with felt to avoid scratching, and using a fly-tying bobbin as a thread tensioner, and it worked fine. (Some of those old bamboo rods are still in use today by family members!)

All this talk about rodmaking is getting me itchy!
