    DIY Longbow stand - where do I get one of these?

    Evening all

    Flushed with success from my DIY portable field stand I am now working on my next one. More traditional this time and made of hazel with a nice 'v' in the top. Im stuck on where to source a spike from though (see what I did there?)

    Anyway, Im after a spike like this to install into the bottom of my timber



    Ive been on Google, looked at Screw Fix and asked then maintenance chap at work but am none the wiser

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    couple of ways you could make one up.... get the biggest nail you can find, drill wood to suit, then epoxy it in. I note people like B&Q are starting to stock odd bits of steel rod and sheet metal... get a short piece, stick it in a vice, file up a point leave the other end blunt and then glue blunt end into wood as above...

    Cant see any nails longer than 6" and I reckon that I need something at least 8" at least

    I reckon your right, its a case of getting a hold of some steel rod and fashioning one end into a spike
