  1. Oak arrows

    A set of oak arrows that I recently made.
  2. Shooting for Old Times

    Last year I got the urge to build a longbow. I have hunted for years, although it seems the more time I have the less I hunt. Having harvested (nice way of saying it) two trophy deer in the past, I mostly go out for the walks now. My brother in law has a knack with woodworking so we each...
  3. Evan Williams and Boredom

    I'd like to start by apologizing up front for the remedial attempt at woodwork. I'm positive I was one of hundreds to stumble into your world this year. The lockdown left many of us with idle hands, empty pockets, and little hope. The resulting wave of "Oooh look at THIS one, babe!" guys from...
  4. European Buck Mount

    I made a simple plaque to display a European buck mount. It is made from some spare oak that my dad cut down and used for trim inside my house about 18 years ago. Basically just made a panel cut out the design on the bandsaw, shaped with spindle sander, and used a 45º router on the edge. Feel...
  5. Archery case (Ascham) of ebonized red oak w/ brass hardware

    Needed a case to fit my Bear Custom Kodiak T/D and other gear, so my first project since high school shop three decades ago: - 34 ½" x 11 ½" x ~3 ½" - red oak boards and 1/8" plywood floating in grooves/dadoes - uses solid brass hardware throughout (save for the hidden (old-style Stanley)...

  7. Red Oak Board Bow

    Been working on this as time allowed over the last few weeks. Finished it on March 16th, save for continued oiling of the wood which will go on for a long time. So far I've shot it about 100 times and I love it! Truly an exciting and enjoyable project and certainly not the last one I'll make. I...
  8. Cross Country Medal Holder

    Hi all- I have a new project that I finished the other day. It's a medal holder for one of my sons. He's on the cross country running team at school and wanted something to display his medals on. He was hoping for a simple board with some nails on it, but I think I exceeded his expectations...
  9. Arrow Walnut and Alder Picture frames

    I made these picture frames to hold certificates, that me and my shooting partner got for getting second place in an archery league, made the corners with walnut with alder for the sides, used junk arrows which i cut down to size and fletched, frame was finished with danish oil and then a coat...
  10. Magic Arrow

    so i saw this project here on LJs (forgot by whom) and just had to try! its pretty rough looking…but it was a great valentines day present. Plus it was pretty fun to make…theres only one small crack on the tip of the arrow from drying. made with Cedar for the arrow and a scrap piece of birch...
  11. Shot Through the Heart

    I saw this in a projects book recently and took a couple hours to knock it out. It was a very doable project for me, despite my lack of toolery. The head of the arrow is about 3/16" or so larger than the hole. The entire project was done by hand - I think I used my ryoba saw, a chisel or two, a...
  12. Broadhead Euro Mount

    GET ONE AT: https://www.noblesavageoutdoors.com/product-page/handmade-broad-head-wooden-plaque-for-european-buck-mount Inspired by the shape of G5 Montec broadheads. Made from 6 separate pieces of oak all glued with simple butt joints. Used a 45 degree router on both the front and back side...
  13. Wall Hanging Wood Arrows Some with Shelves

    My beautiful wife was perusing Instagram one day when she declared I must make a wall hanging arrow! Another use for wood I had been accumulating so I agreed. Fast forward and I made the large arrow for our house which used 22 woods of both domestic and exotic species. For scale, the large...
  14. Arrow of Light

    A few days before my son Carter was to receive the Arrow of Light award for Cub Scouts, I was told that it is traditional for the father to present his son with an arrow at the awards assembly. I usually work much much slower than starting and completing a project in just a few days, but time...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am looking for a couple of books. Making Wooden Mechanical Models by Allan Bridgewater and Making More Wooden Mechanical Models again by Allan Bridgewater. Both appear to be out of print. If anyone has a copy or knows were one an get one, in print or electronically (PDF) please let me now. Thanks
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    For those who like to make all their shop tools! I took an old pair of blue jeans and used them to make a apron of the size and style that i wanted since most of the aprons i found were either too small, too narrow, too short or heavy leather. I made this about 3 1/2 ft long and wide enough at...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have a 9" Craftsman band saw that has a 1/3 hp motor. I got it from my brother in law who said he never could get it to work quite right. I used it today and had some trouble with the blade popping off the wheels. I did get a lot of burning on the cuts whether I was cutting straight (or...
