Antler Spur Atlatl
I've seen this idea in a couple of books, and thought I'd give it a try. The curved tip actually works better in some ways -- it stays in line with the dart through more of the throw, giving better control and more force.
Stick, 3/4" dia. by 18" long
Antler tine, 3/8" at base, 2" long, curved
- Lay the tine on the thin end of the stick, if there is one. Make sure the tine is pointed upwards. Glue it down, wrap it with sinew, and coat the sinew with glue so it hardens.
