    If money was no object, what's the sexiest custom wooden recurve you could buy? I've seen Wengerd, Stryker.

    I just bought a nice hand crafted "wooden" tortilla press. It is simultaneously beautiful and functional. Thinking about this I started to wonder, is it a wood tortilla press or a wooden one, and why does wooden even exist as a thing in this context? And what about bows and shafts? We shoot...

    I'm building a set of arrows for a upcoming competition in July and using Rednef's sticky on arrow building as my go too manual. I've purchased some excellent Tonkin shafts, piles and I have some carved cow horn nocks coming from the Czech Republic. The fletching are to be custom cut from goose...

    I'm wondering what non-Border limbs people are using on their wooden Border risers. I have a set of Uukhas that seem to have about a 3.5# difference on the Border riser than others, and I'm interested in getting a new set of limbs to better achieve the draw weight I'm looking for. Furthermore...

    I am needing to get my arrows a bit heavier. I have a lot of 125gr heads. So don't want to go up in point weight. And don't want to mess with the spine of my arrows. So my question is. Had anyone used wooden dowels??... I shoot axis arrows. And a 3/16 wooden dowel seems to fit well. Have yet...

    An Experiment in Reverse Engineering The longer I had the Assyrian bow, it became obvious that it was lacking something needed . . . I became convinced that "The Something " was a much heavier arrow. So . . . where to start. The available information was almost unuseable . . . (I speak of...

    Long story short, I have a '92 Pittsley Predator. It's beat up but I love the grip. The limbs are twisted bad and you can't use the predator limbs from the distributors. I'm loving my 15" ILF riser as well as the general concept of interchangeable limbs. There simply isn't enough meat on the...

    I was just wondering if there is such a place that could make me a set of 3D wooden arrows matched to a specific set of parameters? i.e. GPI, exact spine and weight match etc in Sitka Spruce? Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks

    My current project is to assemble a good inexpensive ILF takedown for informal target practice and hunting, with a wooden riser and a couple sets of "hybrid" longbow limbs -- one (say, 35 pounds) for target practice on form and one (say, 55 pounds) for hunting. Over all length 62-64". Your...

    Evening all, thanks for taking the time to read my post. I'm building my first set of arrows and slowly aquiring all the necessary tools. I am doing wooden footed arrows pine and walnut. I am also building a cresting bench, which I also plan to use as a tool to round out my shafts. I have...

    When talking with bowyers about making wooden bows, the optimum moisture content of the stave or billet is often discussed. The general consensus seems to be a moisture content of around 12% gives the best results for most bow woods. ... but I've been wondering if the same applies to wooden...
