***This is my attempt at bowyering and arrowsmithing it my not be the correct way but it's the way I understand it.***
There is a ton of information on crafting bows and arrows. A great place to start are the links on the left. Another great resource is books.
Here are the Books I have:
by Dean Torges
*I have just purchased this book and wish it had been my first book, this is the book to have. It's a complete package, from selecting a tree, cutting, bending and drying wood. To "tools" how to use and sharpen them. Then on to layout, not just drawing lines but the difference in the crown and the center of a stave...That is as far as I have gotten in the book, around page 90. next is tillering...
