Not bad. You are  getting longer strikes. That are reaching the center!  Keep at it. Don't forget to watch all the YouTube  videos on napping.  Nice job😀

Its my biggest piece so far I broke the others. Only problem is its too thick and that makes notching hard to do. I'm using abo tools too which can break the piece more easily. I'm not sure what would be the best way to thin a piece other than just using an antler pressure flaker or hamerstone.
