How do you go about footing a wooden arrow shaft and what do I need to get to be able to do so on an 11/32 arrow? Thanks for any help.

Traditional Bowyer's Bible Vol. III Has a good chapter on how to do it.

Or, you can buy Reparrows from 3Rivers.

Clay Hayes has a good video on it. You can buy a jig from three rivers that will get you on your way. It’s a lot of work but always cool to try something new. Good luck!

I posted a build along that you can find if you do a search under my handle. When I get home in a few days I can give you a link.

you talking about repairing an arrow or making a four point footed arrow shaft. Big difference.

The jig 3Rivers sells works good if you have access to a router and router table or a drill press. The ultimate setup is the jig and saw blade sold by Traditional Products Inc. There’s a YouTube video showing how it’s done. There are other ways to make the jig from wood blocks. I saw plans on Traditional Archery Society website under arrow making.

I've got a bunch that I've footed with Reparrows after I changed my anchor point and extended my draw from 25 1/2" to 27 3/4". They don't look as pretty as four point footed shafts, but they have proven extremely stout and don't need any special equipment beyond your standard taper tool. 3Rivers sells them.
