I am certainly glad to see that Rob is more active now. For a while we didn't hear much from him.

Found seven nice 11/32" 60-65lb spruce shafts in my woodie stash and began the build process.  This is light 340 grain average wood that'll make for 515 grain average mass weight with 190 grain field points.  I've got some 190 grain Tusker Concordes that need to get blooded.  :)

Up next is fine sanding, cut to length, point taper, hot glue on field points, seal with 2 coats of Watco wipe-on polyU resin, fletch up, add my personal crest with Sharpie pens, weigh and mark each shaft with its weight and my initials.  Oh yeah, then I get to fly this squadron of buzzy bombs.   :thumbsup:

Rob, after reading Glenn St. Charles' Billets to Bows years ago I built a set of POC arrows with reinforced self nocks with rawhide splines. They worked great and I still have a few of these arrows. I wonder if you have tried rawhide for spines. I used square rawhide dog chews and it was quick and easy with TBIII glue.
Make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes!

Never tried rawhide inserts, Pat.  Might have to give that a go if my dogs will let me have one of their chews!   :goldtooth:

Nice tutorial Rob. I have used antler, cow horn and water buffalo horn also. As you know it is a labor of love for sure.

Great idea, Jon.

I always have little pieces of buffalo horn left over after cutting out tip overlays.
