Another busy week (week 3 of 10) is near completed in the Earth Skills Semester Program. Early in the week we havested a tree for bow staves. We felled it with an axe, sectioned it with a crosscut saw, split it with wedges, and debarked it using draw knives. Yesterday we started scraping deer hides in order to braintan them. With a bit of luck and a lot of elbow grease, they’ll all be scraped today. This week’s video is progressing well, and should be online by Monday. All in all, another great week.
