Title: Another method to make a Lahun sling or others

No metal ; just a flint (only for Homo Handyman Sapiens), bamboo and vegetal fibers to make the sling.

This looks like the way Timothy Potter proposed?

(You might have to try to access it several times over the course of a week, but it is still available.)

Does it differ in any way?

Hello,
A little different. The number of thread. But it seems.
And the frame is very basic. I used modern tools to make it but with a knife you can do it.

I think my method is not the best for history.
My thread is linen : thickness 1 mm.
3 threads : yellow, red and blue.
My English is too poor to explain with many words. So, I hope that my pictures are clear.

I'll have to try making one of these someday, it's one of the only sling designs I haven't had a crack at yet.
