Pounding the Fufu

Pounding fufu is really an art of timing between the stick coming down on the fufu and the hand turning the fufu in the bowl. To watch it, you think the person's poor hand is about to be smashed but with great rhythm and timing, this never happens (well...not that I've seen so far). The fufu-pounding bowls are a solid piece of wood. Can you imagine the size of the trees that they are made from? They really must preserve trees to be able to make them in the future.
