Thanks. It's not that difficult to make a selfbow. It just takes some patience and practice and some halfway decent bow wood. It doesn't take much in the way of tools either. I used a drawknife, farrier's rasp, scraper, spokeshave and sandpaper for this, oh, and a little chainsaw file for the nocks. That's it.

Very nice job on this one Rick. It's got a nice look at full draw. I'll bet it cast an arrow with authority too. :D

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...

Thanks fellas. I've been out of town the last few days so haven't had a chance to get it all gussied up. I'll have it done soon.
