Handmade Long Bow

Make an American version of a traditional English longbow from a single piece of quarter-sawn ash with Dacron strings. Start with a review of shop safety and operation of basic power tools, wood selection and project layout. Construct a bowstring maker’s jig and a custom bowstring, then fit your final 68" bow. Test-fire your bow at a certified archery range in Milton, MA. All levels welcome. Limit 10 students
