How to Make an Easy and Affordable Fletching Table.
Supplies You Will Need.
You will need a few things to make your own fletching table:
-A sturdy table or workbench
-An adjustable arm support (or a stack of books)
-A jig (or template)
Now that you have gathered your supplies, follow these steps to make your very own fletching table!
1. Place yourtable or workbench in a comfortable and well-lit area. Position the arm support so that it is at a comfortable height for you to work at.
2. Attach the jig or template to thetable or workbench using double-sided tape or another adhesive. Make sure that the jig is positioned in the center of the tabletop.
3. Cut strips of fletching tape to desired length and width, and attach them to the jig or template according to instructions. Be sure to leave enough space between each strip for easy removal later on.
4. Apply adhesiveto the back of each strip, being careful not to get any on your fingers! Secure each strip in place on the jig or template, making sure that they are all facing in the same direction.
5. Let the adhesive dry completely before removing the fletched strips from the jig or template. If necessary, trim any excess adhesive from around the edges of each strip using scissors.
6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 until all desired strips have been fletched!

A fletching table is a great way to save time and money when fletching your own arrows. Here’s how to make an easy and affordable fletching table:
Supplies You Will Need:
-1/2″ plywood (cut to size)
-1×2 lumber (cut to size)
-Foam insulation (optional)
-Carpet or other padding (optional)
-Staples or brad nails
-Paint or stain (optional)
1. Cut the plywood and lumber to the desired size. If you want to add T-molding, foam insulation, or carpet padding, do so now.
2. Assemble the frame by attaching the pieces of lumber together with staples or brad nails. Make sure the frame is square.
3. Attach the plywood to the frame with wood glue and staples or brad nails. Allow the glue to dry completely before continuing.
4. If desired, paint or stain the fletching table.

If you want to get into fletching your own arrows, you’re going to need a fletching table. You could go out and buy a commercial one, but they can be pricey. A better option is to make your own! With just a few supplies and some easy-to-follow instructions, you can have your very own fletching table up and running in no time.
Here’s what you’ll need:
– A piece of wood (we used plywood, but anything sturdy will do)
– A saw (to cut the wood to size)
– Sandpaper (to smooth the edges of the wood)
– Glue (to attach the feathers to the shaft)
– Clamps (to hold everything in place while the glue dries)
– Feathers (you’ll need three per arrow)
And here’s how you do it:
1. Cut your piece of wood to the desired size and shape. We went with a simple rectangle, but feel free to get creative! Just make sure that it’s large enough to comfortably accommodate all of your arrows.
2. Use sandpaper to smooth any rough edges on your piece of wood. This step is important for safety reasons – you don’t want anyone getting sliced by a stray splinter!
3. Apply glue to the shaft of your arrow, then attach one of the feathers so that it’s pointing straight up. Repeat this step for the other two feathers, making sure that they’re evenly spaced around the shaft.
4. Place your arrow on the fletching table, then clamp everything in place so that the feathers don’t move while the glue dries. Repeat this process for each arrow that you want to fletcher.
5. Let everything dry overnight, then remove the clamps and voila! You’ve now got a batch of beautifully fletched arrows, all without spending a fortune on commercial equipment.
