I have many designs to choose from...or maybe you have one or more of your own!
If you can think of it, together we can make it a reality! Submit a drawing or talk it over
with me in an email. If it can be done with paintbrushes, I can do it! I'll work up a few
examples of what you might like and then have a little "Show and Tell" with you to
narrow down the perfect design you have in mind.
I usually take about 3 weeks from beginning to completion after you decide on the stain
color, base/cap color and cresting design. Got some custom colors in mind? Lets talk
about it! So....are you ready to get started? Here we go.
Step 1. What size arrow do you need? 5/16, 11/32, or 23/64. If you're ready to order
custom arrows, you've probably been shooting a while and already know and like the
arrow size and spine weight you shoot. I'll be glad to assist if you should need the help
deciding though! (Tapered shafts when available, are additional $25.00 per dozen due to
their increased cost.)
Step 2. My stain choices vary now and then on request, but generally I like to stick with
the tried and true colors of traditional arrows! Looking for something different..just ask!
Step 3. Cresting. There is no limit to the number of styles and designs for cresting your
arrows! I have yet to repeat a design, unless a client specifically requests the same pattern
on each set of arrows! Click on any image for a more detailed picture.
Step 4. Fletching. I fletch right wing feathers in a 2/3 degree spiral; always have, always
will. My arrows spin like tornadoes giving you the most stable flight possible! I fletch
parabolic or traditional. I like to keep it simple....it is what it is!
I fletch traditional 3 feathers, but I will do four fletch for an additional $16.00.
I fletch plain, barred and tre-bark feathers....your choice of colors and styles. If YOU
want it on your arrows....thats what goes on your arrows! (If commercially available of
All arrows are delivered uncut 31-3/4 in length unless you specify a length and taper.
(target tips for an additional $8.00 per dozen.)
Do you like what you've seen so far? I really strive to make the best arrows possible
starting from the ground up. I only buy the finest grade Port Orford premium cedar
shafting known for its strength and straightness.
I use only high quality paints. I finish all my arrows with multiple coats of lacquer for an
unmatched durability both on the range and in the field. The way I see it, you cant
produce the best product if you don't use the very finest materials available.
I know you're wondering about one very important item....PRICE!
Here it is, plain and simple. $140.00 per dozen. (plus $18.00 flat rate U.S. shipping and
insurance. The Postal service is killing me!)
I have recently been forced to raise my prices due to the rising cost of shafts, packaging
and postage, but no matter...You either love them on sight or return them (unshot
please) for a complete refund, less shipping. It's that easy!
I urge you to compare my arrows quality for quality against the big boy arrow producers
like Rose City Elite Extreme or any other custom arrow maker! I wont skimp and the
results are one of a kind, completely personalized GREAT arrows!
Don't go away yet....There's plenty more to see!

"Modern" primitive arrows. If you've seen my primitives, they are great as gifts and for
museum recreation wall hangers. They have sold so well that I have been asked by a
number of friends and customers to make some for shooting! The project is still in its
infancy but I think we have a winner on our hands.
The shafts of course are the same top end shafts I use for all my arrows, so you still get
the same great quality for hunting, target and stump shooting. I "Bloodstain" all the
shafts on the front end, followed by traditional fire burning to simulate hand
straightening of the primitives, stain them the customer desired color, and then fletch
them in whatever feathers are desired. As always, multiple coats of lacquer are applied for
a nice tough finish!
The feathers are applied unshaped and full size (approximately 5 inches) and finished
by a sinew wrap on the leading edge. (and trailing edge if you want both) A coat of
hardener is applied to both edges of the sinew to prevent it from fraying as it repeatedly
fires across your bow shelf or hand.
I then freehand cut each and every feather leaving a spur on the leading edge as are
on the primitives. After hundreds of shots, I have found that neither the leading edge
sinew wrap nor the feather spurs have little or no affect on arrow flight, but it adds that
special look to your set! Don't forget that no two are going to be exactly alike due to the
hand burning and feather cutting.
I have to admit it is labor intensive...but I'm going to hold the price at the same for
them as I do my other "modern" arrows....$140.00 per dozen plus shipping. (for target
tips add $8.00) As always...if you dont like them once you get your eyes on them..send
them back for a complete refund, less shipping!
