Well I broke my bow early this morning hunting and I have decided to make a new bow I was thinking of Hickory or maybe a yew bow. I would like to back it with maple or sinew or maybe laminate it. I think I will make this one with recurve tips. Wanted to know what the board thinks. Any Ideas?

Todd: I think this question is well beyond the scope of knowledge that most here have on the subject, myself included, as I just like to shoot traditional bows and have never made one.

You might try here..........http://leatherwall.bowsite.com/TF/lw/THREADSx2.CFM

The people on this site eat/sleep and breathe this kind of thing.

I DO admire anyone who has the patience and perseverence to make a bow, and speaking for myself, I'd LOVE to see what you do eventually build.
