Just find the end of the arrow. Cut straight down from the middle with your saw about a centimeter

Step 4: Fletching

Picture of Fletching

Cut a 2 1/2 inch piece of duct tape or electrical tape. Set it parallel to the notch about an inch from the notch. Do it to the other side. Push sides together. Cut out shape of fletching u want on both sides.

Step 5: Tip/head

Next, sharpen the end. Or cut heads out of sheet metal and glue it in place. Sorry I don't have pics. If u sharpen it garden it in fire
