A New Set of Woodies

Port Oxford Cedar Arrow Shafts
A new set of wooden arrow shafts drying.

I’ve been shooting a lot of GT traditional carbon arrows out of the longbow lately – which doesn’t seem so “trad.” Since I just bought a 50 year old vintage recurve, I thought I’d build a new set of woodies. This morning I put the second coat of Sikkens Cetol on these 55/60 tapered port oxford cedar arrow shafts. What a beautiful glow they have. The varnish sure is slow to dry in this humid July weather. I’ll be fletching them with some real turkey feathers once the finish finally cures. Can’t wait to see how they’ll fly off the new flemish twist bow string.
