This is one of my favorite build-alongs ever! You forgot some things on your list though. 1500 watts of high intensity quartz halogen light and one or two pair of bifocal glasses (or jewler specs), these are essential for this level of detail. [bigsmyl]

Maybe I'll teach my kids how to do this...nah, better buy them already done. Much safer that way! [biglaugh]

Great thread Derek! Thanks so much!

Have you ever tried stripping the membrain and frills off the splice piece and then cutting it to the size you need? I've seen it done this way and wondered if it has any advantages or disadvantages to sanding off the base as you have shown.

*thinking* no I have never tried it that way. At least not on the store bought died turky feathers. I have done it that way with real wild turky feathers. I strip the feather off the quill and then splice it in with no sanding. Your idea has merit BMN. It would be worth trying. The potential problem I see is damaging the frill attachment at the membrain but other then that... Wow thanks I am gonna try this!

i found that mine turned out cleaner if i chopped and flethced the arow first then cut in the splice and use some fly tying scisors to make it all even, i think it is because i use a az easy fletch kinda rough on the splice.

Thanks Derek, great tutorial!! I needed another excuse to spend some time in my archery room.

The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.
