Well, not really, but I thought it would be fun to look at some toiletite/johnstone points from some of our knappers as you get time and material to work on them, no rush, post'em as you make'em. Give that old toilet a more dignified existance-let's see some recycled crappers.  ;D We could come up with a particular point type to try to make, or just make whatever.

This will be interesting.  I just hope this thread doesn't take the turn that most do and somehow turn to food.   ???

I'm going to start on another soon.

Alright, I'll get this started.  I've moved one of the pictures from my other post as my entry. 

Good ole Johnstone.  I've still got plenty more where that came from.

Do have to use the tank? Or can you use the flat section from the bowl where the tank sits? Just curious . I have an old bolw on my work shop. Makes a nice stool.  :-X ( Pardon the pun) ;D

I guess I will take a hammer to the bowl and see what happens. I reckon I can get a few decent pieces out of the business end of that unit.

  Save yourself some grief with the wife, go to McDonald's and take the lid off their toilet.  Steve, are we going for the thinnest, and prettiest thunder chert point?
