Nice! Did you peck out the bearing block yourself?
Yep. Boy that was fun.
Hand drill and bow drill today.
I tried trophy.
Horse weed on the TP plant. Never can remember its name. Using james gibson inspired hand drill tool thing.
Today's hand drill ember...my hearth board was getting pretty thin towards the end I was working on, but I still got a small ember.
Two embers today, all divots and notches carved with a stone blade
You knapped it out?
I was given a small obsidian core while at Wintercount (oval shaped). All I did was pressure flake it into that shape with a bit of deer antler. After that I used a bit of saguaro rib and pine pitch glue to make a handle, then finished securing with artificial sinew (don't have any tea stuff anymore or would've used that lol)
