About this item

Many archers and bowhunters will be surprised to learn that a wooden bow, whose ancestry stretches back thousands of years, will shoot an arrow as fast and as effectively as the most modern fiberglass-laminated bows. Never before have such detailed instructions been available for the home craftsman, with information on how to make fine bows and arrows from natural materials. The authors thoroughly explain every facet of the process, from choosing wood to applying finishes, making construction easy even for the first-time bowyer.

These fascinating books open the door to the enjoyment and personal satisfaction of understanding and making traditional wooden weapons, which currently enjoy an explosive resurgence of popularity as archers rediscover their magic and turn away from the complexity of assembly-line bows.

With combined experience totalling over a century, the authors have constructed thousands of bows. Now they reveal their secrets and techniques in these three essential books, filled with history, humor, and practical advice -- invaluable information for anyone interested in the age-old lure of archery.

Having been overloaded by what I found on the internet, an experienced bowyer I know advised me to picked up this book. I can't tell you what a great decision this was. This book goes indepth for all the information a person needs to begin their path in this ancient craft. If you're looking for a hobby and think this might be interesting, I warn you: Bowmaking is addictive, and you may never be the same.
