Boo backed Ipe
« on: August 03, 2021, 11:40:45 pm »
I got myself a prime piece of ipe and I think I wanna back it with bamboo. Where are people sourcing their bamboo backing, preferably one that has been thinned already?

I recently got some very nice Madake bamboo backing strips from Jaap Koppendrayer.
Straight wood may make a better bow, but crooked wood makes a better bowyer

I should have thought of Echo Archery and Carson right away.

Thanks everyone.
