The range of goods manufactured by Makah woodworkers was phenomenal.
The low tide beach and reef supplied Makahs with both food and materials.
Forest and clearings, marshes and lakeshores served as garden and warehouse.
Bone and Antler Technology
Bone and antler are difficult to work, which made precise selection of raw material particularly important.
Stone hammers, anvils, halibut line weights, canoe anchors, and fishook shanks were found at Ozette.

Whale bones carefully aligned in trenches outside the walls of houses and under the floors helped direct rain runoff and ground seepage.
