So I saw a set of vintage darts and loved the shape of them! Since I didn’t have any spare turkey feathers running around I started looking for alternative materials.

The milk bottles were on hand so I tried them! I’m really happy with this project and think they are some of the coolest looking push pins I’ve seen!


Thanks for looking!

Great choice on the walnut. Now about the Tim the Destroyer cameo….....
BTW at the begging of the video, what are the grey things hanging on the wall? Keep up the great work.

Nice work on making these darts. I still have some of these original wooden darts from the 50’s growing up.
