Dowel Arrows




About: I like to do dui stuff

These arrows are made for my pvc bow I have an instructible on

Step 1: Supplies

1 dowel rod 69cents Electrical tape/ duct tape Saw Knife

Step 2: Shaft

The dowel makes two arrows. Cut it on half with a hacksaw. Try getting the cleanest cut possible

Step 3: Notch(I Think It's Called That)

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

Step 4: 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

Step 6: Finished

Now ur all done. Check out my bow instructible that these arrows r designed for
