  • from what I understand, the heavier the riser then less hand shock, so be glad it wasnt a 40#

  • Cookie:
  • Used a piece of mulberry for the handle riser n the first oak bow I made. It turned out to be a real looker, but only like 20# and I made the grip too small for anyone but a child.

  • Cookie:
  • I have a few mulberry staves from a tree I took out of my years a few years ago. I've been thinking of trying a self bow from one of them,. The first one I tried twisted massively though.

  • No vacuum bag, either fire hose between a 2 piece form with 60lbs of air pressure or the old rubber band method (strips of inner tube) to pressure it down to the form
  • Feb 23, 2017, 15:56:38
