Having always been fascinated by Indian culture and their tools, I found that I was able to simulate those tools by using various wood and a dremel tool. I don’t think there are many wooden examples of Indian artifacts.
I am having a good deal of fun creating these replica pieces and wondered if there might be a market for such items.

Those are really cool. To me (the untrained eye) they are a great representation of flint or stone artifacts.

Is there a market? There is a market for everything, you just have to find out where that market is.

I thought about doing the same thing, not selling, but just creating the flint/stone artifacts out of wood. Sometimes I run across a board with some crotch pattern in it, which makes the wood look like stone. I trace out an arrowhead or Clovis point and cut out and use a dremel on it like you did.

I think it woul be neat to make a glass top display case and put one’s collection under glass and pass it on to a grandchild or nephew. But I like how your artifacts came out. They look like the real thing.

Interesting look. I have made similar from stone and steel, hadn’t considered wood. Welcome to LJs.

The handle on the knife is interesting too.
