Thank you for purchasing the Catatonk Hunter Atlatl Kit. We hope you will find it a pleasure to finish and use.

Catatonk Hunter Kit

Your kit contains a wooden shaft, a tine made of tropical hardwood, and sandpaper. You will need a small amount of wood glue, scissors and Tung oil or Linseed oil to finish your kit. We recommend Elmers™ Carpenters Glue, Franklin Tightbond or epoxy.

First starting with the coarsest sandpaper, sand the wooden shaft. Progress to the medium sandpaper and finish with the finest or until you are satisfied with the finish.

After sanding, rub the entire surface of the wood (excluding the tine hole) with Linseed oil or Tung oil. Other commercial finishes may also be used. You can achieve a singed look by gently heating the wood over a heat source such as a campfire or use a torch. Wear gloves to protect your hands. After obtaining the look you want, then gently sand and oil the atlatl.

After the finish is applied, glue in the tine in the hole provided with the wood glue or epoxy. Wipe off the excess and let it set.
