I liked this post so much I made some darts following your build! My shafts were hickory and I three fletched them with turkey feathers. I want to make a wooden bullseye target to go with them. The mahogany cut out of the State of Mississippi is going with another project. I used concrete nails that I turned down to make them shiny. Thanks for the build! They make great yard darts!

Very nice darts. Maybe you could add a lightweight ferrule in rear end, to press the fins.
