Good stuff.
I stayed up late last night and made a couple pieces.
first one was a hunting point that a edge crushed on near the tip and caused a bad spot on that edge that I couldn't remove.

Then I was just gonna knock off some flakes to make hunting points from a George town nodule, and wound up working the core instead of making the hunting points,

Translucent GT, wow that’s impressive. Pretty neat that I can see the flake pattern on the other side from this side.

Texas tab Kinney blade. Darker material is the modern blade, smaller one is an authentic artifact. Super thin.

Fantastic stuff, Matt!!  I always find it interesting, but not coincidental, that the guys with all the rock were making the most unique points.  God Bless Texas!

Thanks for the reply, it really makes me feel good. I also agree with rest of your comment. I often wonder about the old ones that were left a little crooked or offset (which always catches my eye) because I cannot figure if they did not care about symmetry. Or if they got the point to utilizing state and stopped. Or they liked the way it looked. Again thanks for looking and commenting.

I’ve dabbled in abo but I get frustrated, making the switch is a dedicated process. Looks like your handling it very well. Dedication and perseverance always pays off, awesome work, and thanks for sharing.
