« Part 2: Murphy's Law hit hard today Part 3 of Arrow of light series Part 4: Got some done »

I got most of the pieces fit and glued in on the wood that was right
most of the pieces
Here is a close up of itmost of the sanding done
I also got some of the pieces cut and fit for the wrong one
I had made some template plugs awhile back, so I take a compass and scribe around it, use a jig saw to rough cut it and then sand to fit

making the pieces the hard way
I leave the “rays and feathers” long so when I rout the arc and arrow shaft, hopefully they’ll be a perfect fit.
When I made the templates (1 for the rays and 1 for the arc. I made some alignment holes, which assures rhat I get everything lined up right without to much thinking/
I placed theses holes under the shaft of the arrow which will be the last piece of inlay I put in.
When I sand, I’ll save the saw dust and make some wood putty for the joints that aren’t close.
I’ll need alot on this job, I have to have them done a week from Sat, plus I’m doing this for cost of wood only
