Jerry came over and hung out with me for a while on Saturday and we worked on a couple of projects he had in mind. One is an early man “tool” used for the flaking of stone(spearheads, cutters, arrowheads etc..). The other is a boomerang. The tool is made of ebony, a lead filled copper cap and 1/4” copper wire. The boomerang is made of Koa. Hey Jerry whats that dust all over your face?? The boomerang will be making its short film debut in a couple of months on one of Jerry’s films. Hopefully there will be a link soon to follow!

It must be that dry desert air that is inspiring this return to primitive tools, or is it just the need to work
with your hands to make something that might be useful and could still be a fun inspiring whatchamacallit
to play with. Thank you for sharing, and let us know if that bomerang flies as good as your helicopter.

Saw a show last night with a couple who live/work paleolithic style. They were showing how to brain cure a hide.
I had a boomerang. Went crazy trying to throw it away!

Have your say...
