Wow, I've been reading the bowyers bible and I've been trying to decide what to try for my first stab at bow making. I won't be able to afford to by a nice stave for a while so I'm looking around for alternative materials. This has given me some things to chew on for a little bit, man I'm itching to get into making some shavings on the floor!

I noticed we've had  several new people here.  Thought I would bring this back to the top.

Well done Patrick!
