Very  nice  thread, these  pictures  illustrate  what I  have  always taken  for  granted-that the  bow really  is a  stone  age weapon

Bringing this thread up from way back...  ;)

I get this build along stuck in my head every time I look at the arrow shafts I have and the pile of Canada goose feathers shoved in a bag under my bed.  Finally made a blatant copy; took two days with steel tools, sandpaper and a pair of scissors.  Looks ridiculously crude compared to yours. :-\

Great looking arrows, very informative build along.  Jackcrafty is the king.

I really like how you fixed that arrow head on there. It looks like the wood is all behind the point with nothing sticking out on the sides. This is inspiring.

Yep, if you make the arrowhead as thick as the tip of the arrow shaft, you can put all the wood behind the arrowhead.

Amazing...

Pat, I've gone through your process, amazed at the tools and the technique you use.  I just LOVE the pic of the shaft after straightening!!  I'm almost seduced over to the Stone Side after seeing what's capable.  We've got so much privet in Ireland, I think I'll start up a "hedge-trimming" business...  ;)

Thoroughly impressed here!

Of all the lurking I have done this how-to article stands out as the one I have come back to time and time again.  Your steps are so easily described with great photographs that it makes it look easy, which is a farse!  You have inspired me though, my feather collection is coming along, red osier is curing, and I'm chipping away at my first bow, slowly but surely.

Wow :D This is really cool! The fact I use only VERY VERY basic tools, a.k.a A small knife a  piece of rock, and and old 150 grit sandpaper makes me feel a lot better about myself good job :D
