Ordered two dozen bamboo arrow shafts on ebay from China. Cost $25 for a dozen and it took almost 3 weeks to get here all wrapped in bubble wrap. All in fine shape through USPS. :tup: I had to sort through to find the closest in weight and got 9 arrow pretty close to each other. Used my heat gun to straighten a few but most were pretty darn straight for a bamboo stick. Started one arrow at a time cutting and filing the selfnocks on the skinny end of the shaft. Once that was cut, shaped and filed to fit my bow string I started bare shaft tuning. Each individual arrow shaft had to be tuned. All are a bit different in spine and diameter so each arrow is a bit different than the others. Once I got all 9 arrows bare shaft tuned I started in on the fletching of the Missouri Wild Turkey wing feathers that a few of our members donated to me these past turkey seasons. Each feather is attached with real deer sinew from the backstrap of a deer taken in Morgan County (a good friend provided). Also I forgot to mention the selfnock is strengthened with real deer sinew wrapped just below the nock slot also. After attaching the feathers I hand cut to 4 inches with scissors to the shape you see in the photos. I finished up by coating the entire shaft plus in between each feather with two coats of Spar Urethane. Field tips were hot melt glued on so I can remove them to attach the hunting tips I'll be using this September for deer season. These arrows weight between 555 to 565 grains and are from 30 to 32 inches long depending on how much shaft I had to cut off to bare shaft tune them. I do have extra shafts to make more.
