The last post of march..

Thanks for all of the support everyone! It’s hard to believe I made it through the month. Special thanks to my girlfriend for proof reading and editing almost all of my writing. It makes a huge difference and I can tell the ones you missed c:

My plan for the future is to write an entry every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday for the next few months, so be sure to tune in and see what I’m up to.

 

Last Wednesday I made a Humboldt spear point for my flintknapping Youtube channel (link will be here when it’s finished uploading). After I was finished I made a cedar frame out of planks that I split off of our old chopping block. I stained the wood with charcoal and beeswax and hand carved all of the joins. I’m going to use my dad’s radial arm saw soon so that I can get better fits in the future, but until then I’ll have to cope with my little draw-knife.

The spear point is glued in with hot glue and fastened with homemade stinging nettle cordage.

I hope you like it!
