    Drill bit in vise removes soft core from bamboo, drop of glue inside, then dowel rod. This just makes ends a little stronger in my opinion. Just cut off after inserting.

    Pencil sharpener type taper tool not good for cane.

    The Bamboo shafts I received were to low in spine so I had to reorder. So while I wait I’m beginning to get my fletching together. I think I’ll try some Goose feathers for fletching. Had some friends give me lots of wings last season, usually I just get their Turkey wings, but when I heard about their hunt I hit them up. Didn’t know how many I would soon see! Anyhow; time to make some Goose fletching...

    Separated and split some of the desired wing, right in my case, lot of work ahead..
    Split... Rounded blade works best.

    No the Sponge Bob table is not for sale! I get the grandkids hand-me-downs.
    Time to use a really sharp knife, if not sharp it with hang up, cut gouges out, and ruin your feather. Just slowly whittle down the quill a little. And yes I made that fancy high tech fletch holder from a door hinge, thin cabinet scrapers, and stick on foam tape inside to hold.

    After thinning down some with sharp knife it’s time to sand. I have used a belt sander for this but I’m too old or lazy to get up so doing by hand.

    Well here you go, for any others out there forced to retire early, and can’t afford a lot of store bought stuff! Make your own hunting equipment.

    Awesome. Those goose feathers should be great in the rain. Much more oil than a turkey feather I assume?

    Even my store bought arrows get Turkey fletching, get plenty from my Turkey hunting friends, can’t beat the price!
