On my last project someone responed:
“You said you make wooden bows and arrows. Pictures please?”
Ok. Here’s one I made a few years ago and mailed off to a guy across the country in a bow trading program. It was a simple English longbow styled bow with slightly narrowed tips pulling about 60 pounds at 29 inches. It’s made of ipe and bamboo with water buffalo horn tip overlays and a leather padded handle. I’m thinking that it had 3/4 inch of reflex and that the guy uses it to hunt grouse. Most of my bows are solid wood, but I do make a few bamboo/ipe laminations like this.
Thanks for the interest
