I’ll be at table 321!
While vending at the West Asheville Medieval Market I was surprised by the interest in the arrows I have made in the past and the bows I shoot with. I'm thinking about making some arrows for sale in the near future.
I generally make my arrows from 3/8" diameter ash with a parallel shaft and use commercially available fletching and field points and cut them to the correct length. I've done a couple small runs of tapered shaft arrows on the nock end. Each arrow is made by hand, from selecting the lumber, turning it into dowels, fletching, and installing the nocks and points.
Since I make the arrow shafts I have plenty of control on what will pass muster and also the ability to make special orders, i.e. non standard lengths and diameters, different tapers, and other assorted details.
Please post if you have any interest or want to let others know.
I'll be out of the shop from today until Sunday attending thenUSN Gathering in Vegas.
I ordered some 2" diameter brass this morning. I'll be working on more mallets and maces when the materials arrive.
1/8" diameter, 20 gauge fused fine silver rings on the outside; 5/32" diameter, 18 gauge sterling on the inside. Each sterling ring gets soldered. The smallest solder pieces get used for this chain. It'll be Japanese 6in1 when it's done/wider.
Live at 8pm eastern tonight!
There will be a top drop tonight at 8:42 PM eastern standard
It seems like a good idea....gotta make another one that's a bit more refined in a day or two. 1.25" diameter titanium key chain.
3/4" X 3/4" X 1 1/4" square head titanium hammer key chains! These will be posted on my site at 3:30pm today (8/5) eastern standard time. They will be $80 a piece including shipping inside the USA.
Getting some spinning tops and coins ready for a drop this Thursday (7/28).
I'll be working on some spike beads made from titanium or Zr. I'm planning on have some available next week.
