Man, that 4 strand jute pouch looks EXACTLY, and I mean, frighteningly like one I made years ago, and just found in the pocket of a jacket of mine this evening. Beautiful work!

Thanks all.

I will post a tutorial when my schedule slows down.

Part of the hold up has been that I keep changing up how they're made and the materials used.

Still seeking the "perfect sling"...

Really beautiful work, Pikaru.  I can't wait to see a carved tibia spear point!

And now I have the bone to do it. Don't worry, I'm pretty sure it's not anyone you know.  Wink

For the spear tips I just need to get new cartridges for my respirator. I recently found out about hazardous bacteria that can be present in bone. I have an air extraction fan with filters and maybe I have an ammunity from all the other bone and antler grinding I've done in the past but hearing about the bacteria freaked me out a little.

Bones still pretty bad even if not infected, it's a strong carcinogen when inhaled.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

That's why you should always use direct ventilation whether it's bone, leather, wood, stone... Grinding bad, Ventilation good.

Picaru, you still make nice slings, and your link lead to an interesting place of which I know wery little yet.

I have hesitated for a long time, but I`m well on my way on my second Chamorro sling now.   The pouch is done and I braid my way on each side.
