 I've made around 75 bows but if I lived closer I would jump at a chance to take a course from Weylin. Do that. You won't regret it. :) :)

there is also the Marshalls Primitive rendevous in Marshalls MI.

Wow, that one is only about 20 miles from Duck Lake, where we plan on spending some time this summer.  If this one were a week or two later I'd be there.

I feel like having one from a master will give me something to aspire to.  I feel as though class will cut down on the learning curve as well. "

I just finished Weylin's class.  I can't think of a better way to spend 4 days and come away with a beautiful fine shooting bow.  Why buy a bow when you can make one for about the same price and gain a skill that'll save you many months/years and staves on your own?  Definitely worth it and Weylin is a class act and a true artist when it comes to finishing bows.

Never bought one but if I was in the market and Pearly made them to sell it would be one of his. He really knows what he is doing when it comes to making self bows.

I was looking at doing both.
Nothing clears a troubled mind like shooting a bow.
