For the next method instead of sliding a sliding a stick back and forth on a groove to create friction you keep it in the same spot and spin the stick and apply downward force on your fireboard use the hand drill and bow drill method. You can do this method by hand, which requires a lot of stamina and can be tough on your hands or you can use a bow and socket to help spin the stick around and apply downward force to quickly create friction and create an ember.
Then the pump drill method makes things a lot easier for the individual creating the fire but creating the equipment can be time consuming if you do not know what you are doing are do not know what materials to make it out of. The drill consists of a crossbar with a hole, through which a shaft is run. A cord passes through the top of the shaft and to the two ends of the crossbar. When the crossbar is pushed down, the shaft rotates, helped along by the cords. If the rotating shaft doesn't spin fast enough to rewind the cords, a flywheel attached to the shaft served to rewind the cord and keep the shaft spinning continuously, first in one direction, then in the other. I decided I was going to try and first experiment with this method and try to make my own pump drill. Instead of a round flywheel I used a rectangular block of oak. I went to the wood shop after school the other day and tried to see what scrap pieces we had laying around and this is what I finally came up with. After looking at some designs online I liked one that could change the tips as they wear out and get smaller with continued use. This way I would only have to make small round wood bit for the end and not have to make a new drill.
Here is a video of me in the wood shop on the metal workbench shows a few of my students how quickly smoke can form from friction between two pieces of wood.
