    Tonight's DIY: antler toggles





    Decided to make these after seeing then in a PIF. Lesson learned:I need a new Dremel.

    With this crowd, I shoulda weighed 'em...I'll do that in just a little bit (when I get up the gumption to head back out back), but they're not particularly heavy. If you're counting grams, you probably wouldn't want to carry them (in favor of sticks or something along the trail).

    What would I need for that, just a flint rod?
