If you’re looking for wooden arrows, that’s awesome, and I wish you all the best. But it can be a ton of fun to make them yourself. It reveals an aspect of archery that’s totally hidden until you experience it: the craftmanship of the sport. The *creative* side of the sport.
There’s something about actually creating your own equipment—taking the wood, making measurements, assembling parts—that is absolutely entrancing. It’s like archery plus the joy of creating art. Don’t get me wrong—there is something beautiful about the sleekness and perfect-ness of a factory-made recurve bow. Even the starter options, like the Samick Sage or Polaris, are stunning and streamlined. BUT…
Craftmanship will always be valuable. The art of taking natural materials, fashioning them specifically, and changing their purpose to something useful—that’s a time-honored tradition that has brought joy to men and women all over the world and throughout many eras of history. And, honestly, as we move closer and closer to having robots do absolutely everything for us, the craftmanship is only going to become more valuable.
So, enjoy your arrows—I’m not saying you need to drop everything and start fashioning arrows—but I’d urge you to give it a thought. If you love archery, manufacturing your own equipment can be deeply rewarding, and the wooden arrows that you, yourself, fashion, can be among the best wooden arrows you’ll find because YOU’VE made them. I’ve written a post about fletching jigs that can get you started. Hood Archery Shop is made of quality medieval archery goods.
