This is basically the dream: on vacation in BC, chilling on the back steps, carving a bow ๐ŸŒ…

New BIG bow (~4 feet) is coming along nicely! I think the wood is hemlock. It's super stretchy.

I'm not even done yet and it already shot a sapling arrow almost 20m! It's much more powerful than bow@3.

stars, having easy access to woods and beaches has been doing wonders for my mental health ๐Ÿ’œ

Collected some candidates for arrows in the woods today :3

I'm really excited about the dead mature salmonberry (right)! It's very straight and doesn't have as intense nodules for buds like the saplings have (left).

Hey @neauoire @rek, have y'all have written about your fermentation processes? I looked on xxiivv and 100r and couldn't find anything.

Every time I see someone using a european wheelbarrow I feel bad for them & how much easier what they're doing could be[1]. :(

Trying a new trick for getting avocado pits started :3

They like to be heads-dry butts-wet.

'you have to remember, computers used to be fast' is not a joke

I had thought that saplings would be best, but I think I was wrong for two reasons:

1. Saplings, once bent, seem to tend to retain that now-bent shape. There is more ductility[1] than elasticity.

2. Saplings perhaps have less dense/strong fibres? This is my hypothesis, since it would explain why the more mature tree limbs seem to be able to sustain greater stress forces.

Short video of bow@3.0.0.

bow@1 and bow@2 both snapped. :/

I'll probably be in Vancouver for another 1-2 months while the work visa stuff gets worked out though.
