Grip for bow
« on: November 25, 2017, 03:24:17 pm »
Been ages since I've posted on here!  I have an english longbow and was wondering if there is any sort of wooden grip I could attach to it?  The reasoning is I don't have the money to currently upgrade and need a bit better of a grip to use preferably with an arrow rest.

I have attached a photo of what the bow looks like.  It was purchased from 3 Rivers Archery in 2011.

Try sheets of 1/4" thick cork and wood glue. Use an Ace wrap to compress it while it dries. Then use sand paper to shape it.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Thick leather also works to build up a handle
I like free stuff.
