2022-2023 Bow Building Thread
Oct 30th, 2022 at 9:39am
 
Here's a new thread for people to start posting some bow pics. I know we have some very talented wood workers here but even if you are not and you feel like you dont have the time or tools for a big bow, just grab a straight branch from a tree or a slat from a board and start carving and scraping with your pocket knife. It doesnt have to be perfect and it doesnt have to be full size. Even mini bows are awesome. Its all about learning and sharing the journey with others.

I have probably 3 half finished bows right now. Ill start posting pics and videos when I can to hopefully get more people sharing.

As promised. Now give into the temptation and make some shavings!

What to do with this reflexed split starve?
About 120 cm. No twist at all.

I bet you could give it a try right? Im sure there's a bow in there although I have no idea what weight you could get from it.
