here's what I made while filming
This first one could be called disasterous execution, and I was nervous
made lots of mistakes that caused it to be way smaller than it should have been

This was a piece of gravel and is all direct percussion up to this point.
By now I'm getting used to the camera being so close and I'm not as nervous as I was.

Well!
My computer is overflowing gigabytes and I don't have room to put the videos on it to upload to you tube.
I got too many vids on it already that I need to upload I guess, but I don't even knap like that anymore hardly.

anyway, here's a link to my youtube channel. It has some long boring videos of me reducing down a couple rocks with no real direction to it and making some fish hooks too.
Nowadays I try to plan what I want to do with a rock before I start knapping it, and I use an abrader way more than I did in those vids.
