    Villosa's Bow Building debut

    Well Here he is as i was told last night he had a Native American Projcet for school . He asked me to help him Build a Bow ,An being we have such short time to build a Plains Indian Bow I chose Willow as it will dry much much faster but it is a very very spongy wood so not a good shooter . Any How here is the Bowyer Now .
    Drum Roll.............

    Picked out a tree (Hickory for a Later Project)




    piece of Barbed wire kept hitting on every swing . it scared the heck out of him ......I about died laughing .


    Looking for a good center


    The cut . We Chose the bow to be 36" inches because most Bows shot from Horse Back were very short


    After cutting the Stave to Length . He drew the shape of the bow an is now centering his lines .


    At this stage things happen very fast he is removing lots of wood very quickly This is called Roughing out. We Stopped here for the day to give the Stave a day to loose some moisture.


    we will Continue Tomorrow Night . So till then

    CN & Villosa

    I can't wait to see it finished! I have often wanted to make a bow, but lacked, well, lots of stuff, including motivation.
