    This is a crappy piece of elm. It has a few cracks in it, that i stopped with some ca glue. Figured it needed something else to take a way from them cracks. So this is what i came up with. Only pic that came out ok with out taking out my photo set up, so this will half to do.

    Thanks all. The arrowhead is wood made from a piece of red malla burl i got off David Keller, and the feathers are made from oak burl. Used a stone arrowhead that i found at the river to get the shape.
