The bow with the sinew backing has dried now for several month. In mid May at the second workshop the bow shall be finished.

Bow building in the workshop at that location is good for slowing down, working with your hands and finding inner peace and enjoying doing a craft which although not as easy as it looks, gives you a good feeling.

The tree has been cut and giving his life to become a bow. I have made several selfbows. All were made to be used for what they are made. They have all nearly the same draw weight within 2 pounds. The tiller of every bow is as close to each other as was possible.

Yet every bow, due to the tree it comes from, in building and shooting, has it’s very own character. The character of the tree where every bow comes from is in the bow.

The character by a tree is always retained whatever you build from the wood, roof top, stairway, window frames, doors, chests, chairs, tables, cabinets and so on. I remember as a child watching and helping my father to build all those things. You have to read the wood. He is a Cabinet maker and Construction Carpenter.

This weekend the bow will be completed.
He will have his unique character of his own.

The bow has a character of his, own different than the others bows. Upon taking the bow into the hand I feel it. He let me let fly the arrow to hit the target as anticipated.


More draw weight than the other bows but much smoother drawing to the full draw length than the others. And this feeling in the hand.

Think highly of the tree who become the bow and is still within the bow. Respect the way the bow is to be crafted along his growth rings. You have to go with them but never against them.

For gun cases or a possible bag, I have an old maternal family pattern which I can transfer to a bead pattern.

For the blue I think I'll take Preussisch Blau. The gray in original is silver. Either white beads or todays gray beads. But that has time.
