Early 2010

Time to carve: 0 hours
Metal work: 2 hours
Finishing: 0 hours

Also while in Mystic, I picked up a couple of arrowheads at a gift shop with a few different slides. I been waiting to make this slide for awhile now and the arrowhead was the last missing piece. Using some leftover brass from earlier projects, the base of the slide was cut then hammered with a ball peen hammer to give the finished look. The holder, for the arrowhead, is also made of brass and took some time to custom fit. The slide loop,arrow head holder, and base were all connected together with a steel pop rivet. After all the brass was secured, the arrowhead was set in place and the holder tabs bent to hold the arrowhead.
