  That looks great!  My dad makes traditional longbows for a living, all wood, no fiberglass.  For a hunting bow it is around 145-200$Canadian.  He also makes broadheads.  But we promote target archery so he makes mainly target bows, and those run from about 75-135$  If you are interested let know and I could get you some pics in a bit.  We really need a website.

Very nice. I uise a plains indian style quiver that i made from
Old bluejean denim, not so pretty but it serves the purpose.
Deer and hogs never know the difference.  That's nice
How'd you get the bark off in one peice? Was the tree dead?
I make selfbows too which is something you should
Consider. Not nearly as hard as it sounds.

the bark pops right off in late spring and summer. as long as you dont take the bark off more than half way around ,the tree shoulds be fine

i gave bow making a try a few years back and failed all 3 atempts. i guess i need to try it again since i know more now

  I'm afraid my dad keeps it a secret from all but a privileged few, but all the woods are found in New Brunswick.  What poundage is your bow?  I shoot a 65lb. longbow for hunting, but I have to practice with it for a few days before I can draw it easily.  Buries an arrow into the heavy white foam we use for targets, (floats in from fish farms,) about 6in. +, the arrow being a larger diameter one, not like the narrow fiberglass ones you buy, and with a shell casing for a tip.

Some of the good northern bow woods are hop hornbeam,
various maple varieties,Ash, yew,  and oak. How far north does
hickory Grow? Most of my bows are hickory.  Using a particular
Wood isn't near as imortant as simply making the bow design
Match the wood you are using. Fine bows can be made from
Almost any wood. Bow woods that are less strong require wider
Limbs. Several lumber yard woods make good bows too.
You need to learn to read and follow grain when your working
Wood.
I would suggest an investment in the traditional
Bowyers bible series of books for anyone wanting to build bows.
They are loaded with info from beginner level to master.
I have some finely seasoned locust staves too. My first 3 bows were
Crap. I'm a professional carpenter and i had some trouble with
Tillering at first. It wasn't until my fifth bow that i got a real
Shooter.

I made a quiver almost like that in my youth, and it shrunk when the bark dryed Sad
I stopped using it when my arrows became stuck in the damned thing Cheesy
I can still remember the bow I used back then, self made from a ash sapling, so stiff I could barely draw it halfway up.  Add the sapling arrows drying into a curve, and ...hmm, I may not have been as well armed as I thought back then, 30+ years ago Cheesy
