Dart Planning and Planing

I started planing down the split birch staves for the Western Arctic atlatl darts and realized I still didn't quite have a clear picture in my mind of what I was aiming for so I paused to do a bit more planning.  A few weeks ago, Greg Hare sent me the measurements for four ice patch dart shafts.  The shafts range in length from 149 to 220 cm.  I traced out the dart diameters on a long piece of brown paper. It helped a lot.  Hopefully I can get into the workshop tomorrow and finish whittling down the birch.
