Bow Making

Whilst I'm not looking to stock the materials needed to make bows, I have made a few bows myself and am happy to help others who may be interested in having a go. I am able to source fibreglass and carbon laminates, have a great source for moso bamboo slats local to me in addition to having a very well stocked exotic wood specialist less than an hour away.

All of my bow building knowledge was gleaned from you tube videos, reading blogs and from a Bingham Projects DVD which was kindly lent to me by a friend. Bingham Projects in the US sells bow making kits. Given the distance and import duties etc.. it would be very expensive to buy the materials needed from the US especially when everything you need can be sourced locally and there is nothing that you need that can't be made.

Building a bow is a great way to extend an interest in shooting one and I believe understanding how they are made can improve how you shoot. It certainly makes you look at other bows differently and it's a great feeling going to a shoot knowing you've made your every item that you will be using to compete and an even better feeling when you win!!

If anyone wants to have a go at making a bow and is stuck on where to get any bits please let me know and I'll help as much as I can.

Below are some pictures and descriptions of a few of the bows I've made.
