Ozark Bluff Dweller Atlatl
Estimated measurements, based on the Ozark Bluff Dweller atlatl, Arkansas.
Wood, 18" x 1" x 1/2"
Dowel, 1/4" x 3"
- Cut the outline of the atlatl.
- Round off all the edges.
- Taper the peg to a rounded point.
- Drill a 1/4" hole 3" from the handle end.
- Sand it all smooth.
- Put the dowel through the hole and glue it in place.
The best way I've found to hold these is to put your thumb and finger over the dowel, and the rest of your fingers under it. I don't know if that's right, but it works.
