Bow workshop
« on: February 12, 2015, 07:38:38 AM »
I am very excited! I signed up for a workshop this summer to make a yew longbow! A piece of art that I can hunt with, and maybe kickstart a hobby/income stream building self-bows and wood arrows. I can't wait for June:)

I keep wanting to join the Archery guild with my 'local' SCA, as they teach you how to make your own bow, fletching, string and so forth. One day maybe. Show pictures as you work on yours please.

I will certainly be taking lots of photos as the process unfolds. I have a couple maple staves that I harvested that hopefully will become something to loose arrows from :o and I will share some of thise too:)
