Can we post pics of our arrows to send off  here or should we start another thread? I had some time the last few days and made two arrows to send to my recipient..whoever it is.  ;)

Mail out by Sept. 12th
We could start up a thread for arrows received.
Were up to 20 people so far.
gifford wasn't sure if you wanted in or not leave me know if you will.

Ed I was thinking I'd wait for info on who they are for too. Maybe not place to ask but if I understand correctly spine should be about 5 lbs lighter off handle than center shoot? I've  made all my bows close to center so far.

BJ, 5# to 10#
 I normally don't shoot my trade arrows. They go in my collection.
The arrows I made for this arrow trade are one hill cane and one sourwood shoot arrow. Both being fully tapered shafts makes them more draw weight tolerant. These should shoot from bows 45# to 60#. I'll shoot them before I send them out in case my recipient wants to hunt with them.

Yes that's for shoot shafts.Over here I've got quite a variety I've experimented with.Ash,walnut,honey locust,maple,douglas fir [parallel shafts,one barreled and all a little more finicky about spine],and the tapered more forgiving shoot shafts are dogwood,sourwood, & hazel.
Maybe I'm making this more complicated than it should be.

I never shoot mine or intend to. I have a half rack elk shed they balance on. Ed I think I you wanted to, a 28-29" 50-55# spine arrow would cover about 80% of us.

That's kinda what I was thinking of making Pearl. Whoever gets mine doesn't have to shoot it but I'm sure I will, I haven't made one yet I didnt. Just can't help myself gotta do it.🤔

Any arrows made ought to be shootable. If it don't shoot well it ain't an arrow.   ;)

Kind of like the wall hanger bows. Just because you know it isn't a shootable bow, doesn't mean someone down the road will also know that.

That reminds me of a project a kid made in my silver smithing class. It was a necklace based on the medieval torture device called the iron maiden. It had rows of spikes facing toward the neck and the tips just about touched. If it were worn it would result in death. We got into a heated debate on whether or not it was jewelry at that point. I was of the opinion it was more along the lines of sculpture or even a weapon since it couldn't actually be worn. Well worn more than once anyway.
