9781438991993: The Art of Making Selfbows

This book is meant to be understandable and fun to use. The topics range from the beginnings to the end - cutting and curing wood through building a self bow of almost any type and finishing it. Self bows are wooden bows with no laminations in the limbs. Both beginners and advanced bowyers should find the book usable and worthwhile. There are extensive descriptions and directions throughout, supported by over 200 individual color illustrations. Besides the how-to directions, there are sections on heat-bending, splicing billets, shaping handles, and treating problems like knots, cracks, etc. Several other useful topics are addressed, such as suggestions on how to make a bow with only a few measurements, reduce hand shock, eliminate stack, stabilize arrow flight, shoot where you look, and increase arrow speed.

About the Author:

Stim Wilcox has been making bows since he was a child, where bamboo splints and privet hedge arrows were exciting things to make and shoot. The bow-making experience that led to this book came mostly from the last 16 years of experimenting with hundreds of bows and many woods. Every word in this book stems from a love of archery and the pleasure of sharing the information and ideas about making wooden bows. The book has been written from the heart.
