firebow

Some self-made tools!

This is a firebow. To put it simply, you use the bow’s string to spin the stick repeatedly until it makes an ember. How long does it take? Until you feel like you’re going to die.

This is some berch tar I messed around with. It smells funky, but you can grease wagon wheels with it and it prevents rust and the like.

 

This hook was made from a soda can tab, and the line was made from basswood.

And lastly, a four-prong fishing spear. I’d like to make a stronger one in the future, but as you can see, it gets the job done.
