So Greg and watching Jeorg Sprave's youtubes videos, and playing a bunch of minecraft put me in a serious do it yourself kind mood so today finally got payed so I went down to the hardware store bought up some dowel and made me some arrows with duct tape fletching ( I intend to learn to use feathers too somepoint but this is cheap and quick) Heres some pics
I have a vid too but I dont have time to upload gotta goto work
I just sharpened the tips of the wood for points cause Im to lazy to make heads right now
Be careful tho, it's addictive. Ya know, that sense of independence and the ability to create something out of... well, something else. Just becareful or you'll end up like me and jump from one project to the next and not really finish the first.
no chance of that greg,Ive built myself a list build arrows perfect arrow building (just get good really) during this practice archery build slingbow ( ... re=related) use slingbow to gradually increase draw weight so I can shoot with a lot more power
and simultaneously to this I am training with swords with cutting and dry drills Im building a pell next week and will eventually begin sparring with my brother this is my summer project plan
yes, arrow making is very addictive! I must've made over 30 by now. Here is method I use to make make my arrows, though with a few changes - I've started to use synthetic inserts in order to make them slightly more reliable/historically accurate. And my arrows are 3/8 of an inch not 1/2 an inch as shown in the video.

duct tape fletchings seriously is there anything duct tape cant do :lol: good on you Hairu,its always nice to see anything archery related heres some of mine i recently made,very plain,and the fletchings are a tad wide and the bindings not the best but well they stick in the target (i didnt make the quiver)

christain: Considering I'm wiping my a** with paper kitchen towels and drinking hard liquor because there's NO BEER...I'm doin' great! I can remember when having a case of Corona meant for a good weekend at the lake.
