Really nice work. Makes me, too, want to take up archery again—I spent hundreds upon hundreds of hours shooting any non-living target I could find when I was a bit younger.

GREAT JOB!!!! I really like the wood combo and the fact that its a take down. I’m an avid archery hunter with modern equipment but would really enjoy trying with a traditional bow. Very fitting display as well! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the kind words. Building these laminated bows is not difficult, but it is a very involved. Lots of steps. I used to wonder why these sold for $800-$1300. After building a few of the 3 piece recurves, I wonder why they sell so cheap!
Traditional Archery is a great hobby. Anyone interested in exploring bowyer work, just send me a message.
