    Sarge why did my sticky of "Making things (Making Tools, Knives, Nets & More, with a sub-section of Making Your Own Outdoor Gear"), get moved to the " Survival Food: Foraging, Hunting, Fishing, and Trapping" Forum??? It does belong in the "Making Stuff" Forum, where it has been.
    Thanks

    I used the SEARCH BUTTON (like Sarge hinted to you) Search: Key Word(s): knapping , and low and behold there are 2 pages of info, tips and pictures! The SEARCH BUTTON is at the top of each page, nestled between "New Posts" and "Quick Links".

    Enjoyed checking out the "The Three-Stick Roycroft Pack Frame."

    I've made a number of pack frames over the years using one of my grandfather's as a model. Not too hard to make and very comfortable:

I did awalk in camp at the end of oct. last year .I rolled all my gear in my diamond fly and strapped it to the frame leaving the pack empty when I got to camp I unstrapped the diamond fly unrolled it and every thing is at hand when camp was set up the pack was empty and ready for a trek in to the woods no digging in the pack to find something

    well i know i'm slow about getting things done, but i'm working on a couple of things right now for pictorials, though not all on this list.

    firstly, i'm making a pretty simple fletching jig.

    next, and the reason for the fletching jig, i'm making a matched set of hardwood sucker arrow shafts. these include pitch and sinew mounted obsidian points, self knocks and turkey wing feather fletchings.

    if i can get ahold of the canvas; i'm doing a sort of hybrid sweat house, using a canvas skin over tipi-frame lodge, and a cast iron pot belly sauna stove. i've been on the lookout for a suitable stove, and lo and behod, one was given to me the day before yesterday.

    i'll be finishing a couple bows soon, so i'll show how i make my fishing line bow strings, including carribou fur silencers and coat-button thread serving.

    for extended outdoors trips, i would like to demonstrate smudging, both body and clothing/bedding, with local plants. for example; we have an abundance of invasive eucalyptus around here witch i find is great at minimizing body odor. juniper and cedar are also great.

    i wish the weather where on my side this winter, as i've not been getting in much mushroom hunting since i got my new camera.

    Very nice work on the pack frame, How long did it take you to make that?

    here is the simple fletching jig i've made, and the proccess of fletching arrows with it. the jig could even be made expediently in the feild, by using a neatly split wood.

    at the top of the jig, where the twp pieces meet, the edges are beveled to 45 degrees, to allow clearance for the fletching feather's spine. all that is requires further is two lengths of cordage and some wedges of wood, bone, antler, or as in the images, whatever happens to be handy.

    yep. the turkey feathers i buy come in pairs, invariably one left and one right.

    if i buy 4 black and 2 olive, i end up with two arrows with different irrientations. as long as the spine is appropriate and they fly true, it dosen't bother me enough to match the set to all one wing.

    I agree about them flying true, A friend of mine is a turkey hunt guide down here, And brings me Several sets of wings a year and I use both left and right, And they work the same to me.
