There’s a great “how to build your own atlatl and dart” video guide over at Make Magazine.  It’s a little crude but very similar to the very first atlatl I ever made … before we figured out how superior aluminum and river cane are for darts, and how counter-weighting and flexible shafts improve your throw and all that.  Overall, a great guide for someone with limited time, tools an materials — it’ll get you out and throwing in an hour.

Buy my atlatls at Etsy.com!

Hi, I’m Ray Strischek. I make atlatls and darts.

And I sell those atlatls and darts that I craft year after year over at my page on Etsy.com. Etsy is a secure marketplace website for people who make things. It’s a bit like eBay without the timed auction setup … So, as long as you see the products available, you can buy them from me through the Etsy interface.

If you have any questions about me, atlatls, darts, or atlatling in general, please contact me by phone at (740) 592 – 3465 (Monday – Friday, 6pm – 10pm, Eastern Time) or contact me at the email address on my card. Sorry, I can’t publish my email address online. But if you really want it, give me a call and I’ll provide it over the phone.

Thanks for looking and keep in touch.
