This is all ya need to start a fire, the spindle and hearth board is made of
Yuca, alot of other nonresinous wooods will work such as cottonwood.
The tender here is Red Cedar bark, rolled up like a rats nest.
This is how the bow is used on the spindle,primitive man would have used a
rawhide string for this, Nylon last longer tho.
here we have smoke,,even just after a few pumps on the bow.
We have Spark...We have Spark.
The ember is then placed inside the tender,,and BLOW !
Just blow till...Poof !!! FIRE this is alot of fun to do. Gran yungins just
love it. enjoy
Arrowheads1 would like to sincerely thank
George Looney for this contribution.
