Re: A Wikipedia Link

Interesting.
I live in Sweden which apparently is the tenth safest country, with some family and close friends in Malta - the second safest. Pretty ok.

Also, it's dark here. Probably something to do with the fact that it's 11pm.

Re: My new camping wood stove

Would you be willing to share the design?

I'd happily order one from the same guy, but I'm thinking shipping it halfway across the globe would be kinda cost-prohibitive.

Looks very neat.

Did you design it yourself?

Based on the second image, I came up with this design.

I must also figure out how to attach it to the bow.

Re: New project. Arrow rest/whisker bisquit. *Input Wanted*

I have the stick-on plastic thingy on it now. It works, but it's not very nice.

After that I'll try to make sights and, if I can figure it out, dampeners.

New project. Arrow rest/whisker bisquit. *Input Wanted*

With an (albeit primitive) release finished. The next part of my cheap-ass bow project is a new arrow rest. I'm still in the planning phase and would like some input. Right now I'm leaning towards some kind of captive design, like a whisker bisquit. Maybe like this: http://i226.photobucket.com/album...

Re: DIY archery release. Pic heavy. *FINISHED*

Nice site, seems to have lots of interesting info.

I've been thinking about turning the bow into a project where I try to build our improvise as many accessories as possible, your link is sure to come in handy.

Re: My attempts at gardening.

Ok, I know what you mean.

No, I dont think it's grafted. It looks like a single trunk that just branches out. I'll get some pics tomorrow.

Re: My attempts at gardening.

Can you tell if it is a grafted apple tree? Are there any other apples around to pollinate it? They're very pretty when they bloom even if they don't set on fruit. I don't know what to look for. It appears to be starting to form fruit. There are probably other trees nearby, but I haven't really che...

Re: Making an archery release. Pic heavy.

I finished it today.

I sanded the whole thing down and applied a coat of linseed oil.

The grove for the string required some adjusting, I damn near gave myself a nosebleed when it let go at half draw.

DIY archery release. Pic heavy. *FINISHED*

A few weeks back I was given a compound bow. It's a cheap, pretty old thing but it's mostly been sitting in a closet, so it's in good shape. I also got a fistful of fibreglass arrows with it. The previous owner claims to have shot these with the bow, I am however somewhat sceptical and ordered some ...

Re: My attempts at gardening.

Good to see you around again. Gardening is always a work in progress, getting stuff built this year for next year never hurts! Thanks mate. It's good to be back. That's my thinking too, I'm taking it slowly. I'll probably add more plant beds if it works well. But there's a lot to do on a house and ...

I try not to leave home without a multitool. Currently it's a Leatherman Wave, before that I had a Victorinox Swisstool. I love both.

Re: Bushcraft basics: Fire starting with Pine.

A good way of recognizing fatwood stumps is that they rot from the outside inwards, creating a pointed stump instead of a hollow one. At least here in the frigid north, pine is the only tree that does this. Even if the stump is almost entirely underground you can dig it up and it will work. Dry dist...
