Many archers and bowhunters are surprised to learn that a wood bow, whose ancestry dates back thousands of years, will shoot an arrow as effectively as most modern bows. Never before have such detailed instructions been available to the home craftsman on how to bring such history alive. This book—the fourth volume in the immensely successful Traditional Bowyer’s Bible series—is a compendium of expert articles that compare the characteristics of different bow woods; examine techniques for heat-treating bows and for making laminated bows; look at ancient bows and arrows from around the world; further explore the Mass Principle (introduced in Volume One) and its effect on bow design and performance; and look at the best features in traditional bows for flight shooting, and much more. The authors reveal their techniques with ample history, humor, and practical advice.
Original research on traditional techniques of making wooden bows and arrows, written by leading experts
Indispensable information for adherents of the traditional wooden bow
Copiously illustrated with black-and-white photos and line drawings
