Drawstring leather pouch.  Made with deer hide on one side, cow hide on the other, hand sewn with sinew.

Fine job on the ferro rod.

The Tree Swallows have been all over the place lately.  They are so graceful when they fly.  We have a few nest boxes out and they've been scouting.

Eastern Bluebirds first brood of 2014.  They nested in Kentucky a little earlier this year than the last few years.

Made some ferro strikers over the weekend.  Deer antler tine harvested in Kentucky with 3/16" ferro rod and steel striker.  I made ten of these.

That is fantastic work. All done in the hand? I have to use a Sollberger jig to get a longitudinal flake. Paleo man must have had 2 or 3 times modern mans strength and all his dexterity. Those GEICO advertising folks never knapped when they came up with "even a caveman can do it ."

Knocked out this Clovis point over the weekend.  Done with copper and antler.  Hand fluted.

Here is the new moose antler billet I promised a picture of.  It fits the hand great and is weighted perfectly.

Thank you Jeff. It was my first leather project and I've already got the bug and starting others now.

Here is a better pic.
