A painkiller for cattle decimated India's vultures - now it's been approved in Spain and Italy, putting Europe's vultures and eagles at risk. http://ow.ly/xqyaL

Very impressive. Out of curiosity, what was the bowstring made of? Which kind of tree bark? I'm assuming you cut down a sapling with the rock blade to get the bark?

What did you use for a bearing-block? Did you have to lubricate it in any way? Did you have to pre-heat the set beforehand to evaporate any moisture (ie multiple burn-ins)? Did all this really go as seamlessly as it looks?

I seem to be getting to much oven spring from my loaves. They are splitting along the base. I cut the tops. Is the oven not hot enough? To much water in the steam pan?

Story
Tagline
Writer and editor, based in Zagreb, Croatia
Introduction
I'm a father of two lovely boys, aged 11 and 8, and husband to one lovely woman who remains ageless.

I'm a lover of travel, and recently returned to Europe after four years of adventures with the family in Asia. 

I'm currently working at CoinDesk, a cool bitcoin news site, writing and sub-editing.

Things I love: scuba and freediving, ceramics, bread, wine and cheese making, playing guitar and walking high into the mountains.
