Make the sycamore 6 feet long and you will have better luck with that species. Good job on the rest. Gary

From my perspective "sapling bows" are the purest of all the concepts. Nice job. Gary.

Re: "Staving up" Plum, Apple, Yew, Hazel (reply)
On Apple and Plum the back is usually right under the bark. Unless, of course, one decides to "decrown", but that's another story. Gary - Admin

Re: Billeted Indonesian Teak Self-Bow. 50#@28'' (reply)

Re: Big leaf maple stave help (reply)
Longbow man- I'm going to recommend you do NOT try to split them yet - just take the bark off one and leave the others alone. I'm basing this recommendation on 50 years of bowmaking experience. Also if you have to split them at all this...

Re: Best improvised bow and arrow in a Movie and other great movie moments in archery!!! (reply)
I'm not saying it was the "best" but, the scene in "Predator" where Arnold S makes a "bundle" bow seems like a decent representation of improvising under diverse conditions. Gary

Re: Native american northeastern woodland bow types? (reply)
Type in "dimentions of the Sudbury bow" in Google and it comes right up. Took 30 seconds- also your spelling of "Sudbury" is incorrect. Gary - Admin

Re: Clueless (reply)
Just a note to clarify about Mesquite: Ryan is correct about it working well with sinew- however, if you be careful of the back it will produce unbacked bows as well. This all depends on the diameter and length of the staves. All my...

Re: Clueless (reply)
I have used mesquite (green Mexican) a number of times with good results. Several bows less than 46 inches long and a couple spliced limbs of 33 inches giving finished length of roughly 60 inches. Very flexible and durable. Gary
