For those wanting to try their hand at building some not so fancy but, functional wood arrows, I thought I'd share how I do it. I start by using 1 doz. Surewood shafts spined 60-65#, 32" to start and 410-420gr. These will be for my Howard Hill Tembo this year.
 -

I then, using a white cotton t-shirt, so no inks bleed through, stain with a Colonial Maple Minwax stain. This gives them a very traditional look in my opinion and really brings out the wood grain. Let them dry for 24hrs.

Pon, I live right down the road from where they build them. All I have to do is call in what I want, and when they're ready, go pick them up.

I like the Calabash pipe in the left corner. ;-) (And the burl ones, too).

Now see what you've done. I'm gonna have to drag my pipe out and get stern looks from THE ADMIRAL.

Stumpkiller, it really helps me relax sometimes to just sit at my work bench and enjoy one of my pipes. The Alpha wood pipe, I got from Dick in Seattle and it is my favorite.

Understood. I got started to keep the blackflies and mosquitoes off while fishing and now it's just an occasional treat. I have an old briar bent-stem bulldog that is small but my favorite. I used to go through a "Missouri Meerchaum" every couple years - corncob pipe to the uninformed. Sweet smoking and light enough to keep in your teeth without hands or geting a stiff jaw.

A pipe gives a wise man time to think and a fool something to stick in his mouth. (C.S. Lewis)

The high grade Missouri Meerchaum, never thought I would say that, with Balkan Sobranie, very expensive English blend, is the best string making, arrow fletching, canoe paddling, flyfishing combo I have found. Don't shoot your bow with your pipe in your mouth. That is not being a wise man. I know of two people that did, talk about your teeth rattling bow shock.
While i puff I wonder, what is the spread of grain weights on say a hundred surewood shafts versus the bulk order of 100 cedar shafts.

These smoke signals are killing me -- like a foreign language to a licorice eater like me!
