Learn the basics of the bowyer's art while completing your own wooden bow. This year we'll start with prepared blanks so you can shoot your bow sooner. Each participant will "tiller" their own bow, gradually removing small amounts of wood with drawknife, rasps and sandpaper until the bow bends smoothly and evenly to the desired draw weight. We'll add linen backings to these bows for security, and show you how to make B50 dacron bowstrings too.
