If you are starting out in the world of Bushcraft the Bullroarer is a great thing to make. It involves simple carving techniques and you will need to make good strong cordage too! When finished you will have something to show for all your hard work and something that is good fun. Ideal for a beginner!

The bullroarer has long been used by the Australian Aborigines in rituals and as a simple method of communication over long distances. When swung around above your head the Bullroarer creates a fantastic roaring vibrato sound that changes throughout its circuit.
