Handmade Long Bow 1S20 CANCELED
Make an American version of a traditional English long bow from a laminated blank of flat and quarter-sawn ash. Start with a review of shop safety and operation of basic power tools, wood selection and project layout. Make your own bowstring on a string maker’s jig. Leave the second class with enough information to finish the final shaping process at home before test-firing your bow at a certified archery range in Milton, MA. All levels welcome. Limit 10 students
