Outstanding job on those arrows! Those goose feathers look very professionally done, could you do a split, grind, and chop along for those of us that like to butcher perfectly good feathers? ;)


Morgan,

I could probably do that sometime in the not too distant future.

Thanks for looking.

Those arrows look great Mike. The goose feathers are sweet. Match your markings nicely.

Very nice set!  Now, to get my goose feathers off the wings, split and ground!

Great build along. They look great.
Where do you get blocks of Sitka like that! Does TSA sell them. All the Sitka I can get is 7/16 x4 and is very slim picking as far as quality

TSA (Wayne) has his contact info on his post in this thread.  They have lots of neat stuff as far as wood is concerned.  Not sure about block, though.

I don't think True Shaft Archery (TSA) sells blocks of Sitka but it wouldn't hurt to contact Wayne and see.  I got this block because I was lucky and won a giveaway Wayne did on this site.  I think I will probably be able to build at least 50 arrows out of this block of wood.  Again, I feel pretty fortunate to have won this.

It was enjoyable to go back and read your posts from the beginning. Thanks for taking the time to bring us along for ride.

I am glad people enjoyed the build.  I have wanted to build arrows this way for a long time so winning that block of wood was definitely appreciated.  It is not the fastest way to build arrows but may be the most satisfying way!

I know what you mean by not the fastest - working blanks/shoots down is a pita, but when they get finished it is a great feeling of accomplishment!  I can't really see spending $100+ for a dowel maker if I can drill some holes in steel and do the same job of sizing - straighteng is an other challenge!
