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???

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!!!
