    Just bored, thought I would post a pic of my cresting job and homemade turkey fletching...These arrows have gone thru at least 2 seasons if not 3, so they aren't as fresh as they were when new, but have held up pretty good...anybody else make thier own???

    Now those are some sweet lookin arrows!
    Really nice work--- I'm impressed by their durability!

    (I thought real feathers didn't hold up as well...)

    Ya just need a steady hand....let the cresting tool do the work, spinning the arrow...The first ones I ever did, I cut a notch in each end of a cardboard box, and spun em by hand!! Turned out pretty good, believe it or not!!!
