I had no idea what this was. I found this on youtube. Thought you might like to watch. He makes this out of stock wood.

I had no idea what an atlatl was all about. I read your article and thought that finding the right kind of branch would be tough. I decided to do a youtube search. So far there is little there that can't be found. I have never made an arrow either but I did find how to use an atlatl interesting. Looks like a serious amount of practice though.
