cold and rainy outside, I planned to work on the 2026 oak firewood in the barn for a while, nope.

my wife decided to move furniture around. so I have to move my pestle display..
it's a game of musical chairs and furniture again.
move, dust, vacuum, restore.

The dusting! That’s my biggest issue so many rocks and artifacts it takes forever to properly dust. Always looking for better ways to display, get more things under or behind glass.

thanks I have picked up about twice this number of pestles over the years.
There is a scarce gouge in the group. Found in Hamilton County IN, the granite gouge has a good scoop.

One does not see many gouges found in the area that I am aware of.

Here it is in the photo above,

The scoop is easy to see, the bit is nice also.

Nice Gouge as far as I know we don’t have them here, maybe a chert type but I’ve never seen a Hard Stone Gouge from my area.

The gouge is one relic most do not find often and it seems to be relatively scarce, like I said. I have only seen a handful of these in collections in this area.

This gouge is classified as a full-channel gouge.

Hothems publication "Indian Axes & Related Stone Artifacts" page 145 states:
"This gouge form has one face convex and the reverse has a bottom channel most of the distance from the bit to the poll. The hollow may not be narrow but may reach from side to side the entire distance."

I know way up north it’s a popular tool that they used. But you don’t see many examples being found nowadays. That’s a very good example
