Good quick idea if you need to make a Bow Drill fire. Fits well in any backpack or BOB. Full marks for your design.

About

Preserving history through functional art.

I have always had a fascination with the way things used to be done. As a child visiting the reenactment towns and markets so common here in the deep South, I always loved learning about how the Native American tribes and the pioneers and frontiersmen made their lives livable. Later on in my life, this developed into a study of many past peoples, from Paleolithic man through the Vikings and Celts and beyond. Along the way, I learned that the best way to understand these ancient cultures was to experience the way they did things in the most firsthand way possible.

Thus, I became the craftsman I am today through a process of "experimental archeology". I tried my hand at making simple art such as jewelry and reproductions of tools based on artifacts and found imagery from stone carvings, cave paintings and so on. I live my life with one foot rooted firmly in the past, and couldn't be happier about it.

Each item I create is made completely freehand. I believe there is a certain soul to something made without machine precision, so I never use any automation nor any patterns for anything I craft. This is especially true when working with natural materials such as wood and shed deer antler. Each piece is totally and completely unique, and I seek to preserve this natural beauty whenever possible.
