Spear-Thrower Making Including Stone Flaking and Gum Preparation

Dunlop, Ian
Genre: 
A man of the Western Desert makes a spear thrower (or Woomera), he cuts the wood from a mulga tree and shapes it with a metal axe. He prepares spinifex gum, flakes a stone blade, and sticks the stone (for use as a knife and scraper) to the spear-thrower handle with the gum. He binds a barb to the other end of the spear-thrower with Kangaroo leg sinew.
