My first traditional longbow made with the help of a family friend who makes bows and has all the jigs / forms.

I drew the design myself. Very happy with how it turned out. I’ll have to get some pictures of the limb tips which are pretty sweet as well. It’s a shooter!!

VERY COOL! I just started shooting again (compund) and I plan to eventually go back to shooting longbow. It would be awesome to get to shoot one I actually made myself.

Welcome to Lumberjocks, great looking bow, and the fact that you made it and it is a “shooter” makes it even
better. Thank you for sharing.
