Hello gents, I started on an arrow for my recurve bow I've been playing with. The shaft is an old arrow shaft that the vanes came off of. I watched some YT vids and I decided to try and mame one. I sanded it and burned a few marks in with the torch. Then I dyed the shaft with Black Walnut dye and BLO. I screwed up with the nock. I didn't go against the grain and ended up splitting the grain a little. I got the nock done and wrapped it up with some leg sinew I harvested from my brothers deer. I got some tail fan feathers from my Tom last year. I tried to make pine pitch but it didn't turn out too well. I super glued the feathers on and sinewed them on. I did clean up the sinew and made it look better. The arrow looks good on my bow though. I need to singe the fletchings to make it semi symmetrical. The bow, my Dad got from my Great Great Uncle Junior ( whom I was named after). 45# @ 28". I put jute string silencers and made my own string for the archery merit badge. It shoots off the shelf and I even put my own string nock on. What I need is some flint arrowheads. I think I have the pine pitch figured out and I have leg sinew. I can pay for shipping or I can try to trade. I don't know too much about flint arrow heads sizes but I've seen prices and sizes online. Wow! I said if I'm paying for that I'll try and get them here. Thank you for gandering and the help!!! Feel free to criticize and comment!!
