    First steps in Birchbark

    Bone needles

    I found the flint to work really well with the bone, getting a piece with a 90 degree edge hels to efficently scraps the bone down and shapes it. Using a flint using burin to gouge out before breaking off with a stone was the bit i found slow work. Making the hole was a lot faster than i...

    Bone needles

    Nice work John. I made some bone needles myself over the weekend, my attempt at replicating some stone age needles using flint and sandpaper in place of some sand stone. To be polished with some sand and water when I get time. Tim Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk

    Day Out The Fallen Oak (pt5) - Ground-Feeding Bird Snare and Gammon Lunch

    The fire was loaded with oak to burn down ready for lunch and I chilled and did a few small things around camp. Even something small like a lid lifter for the zebra can make a little difference around camp. The coals for lunch were ready for another green stick cooking method (I...
