Making Arrows?

by Woodsbum

I was surfing around and found these videos that I thought were quite interesting. Having tried to make arrows on my own without ANY training, I think that there is enough information in these videos to help me to get some arrows that don’t turn corners.

Now I do want to toss out the disclaimer that the first two are not my favorite, but I do like the way he makes the arrows a uniform size.

 

This one is about fletching how to attach fletches to a homemade arrow. It also breaks down the idea of helical and how to pick the right arrows.

I like this video on straightening arrows. If you use the below technique to straighten your homemade arrows, you can actually come up with usable projectiles.

I have never seen this process and it is very cool to see. Now I am going to have to buy me some more tools.
