Stone Age needle
just an old dream put to life.
It’s not all wood!!!
Ok this time it is really not all wood, but since it can be made of hardwood also and with woodworking tools, I thought it could be at interest to you guys ‘n girls here.
My wonderful artist friend Flemming gave me some genuine Stone Age tools, a knife and two arrow heads.
This made me want to try and make an old dream, to make a Stone Age sewing needle.
Since I had some bones (not my own), I took a piece of this and started working on it.
Decided to use the fastest tools, since this was not a try to go back in time project, more a try if you can and if it really works project. Then drilled the hole and finished the needle with hand tools.
1. Arrow head, knife and my needle on top of the bone.
3. It actually works!
4. Using a genuine stone age Festool saw for cutting.
5. And the genuine 220v stone age lathe.
6. Not easy to make it this thin.
Perhaps this could inspire to go stone age.
