When you want to create a functional longbow that you can customize to your preferences, the 72 Inch Hickory and Bamboo Bow Kit makes a great place to start the medieval bow making process. The bow making kit includes a shaped stave, backing strip, and bowstring. The floor tillered stave is crafted from premium hickory wood that has been pre-tapered. The bow backing strip is made from bamboo. All pieces come ready to glue together. The glue surfaces have no saw marks and have been roughed up with a 36-inch grit belt sander to give the glue a tough bite. This DIY bow kit can yield a bow with a draw weight between 30# and 80#, making it a great choice for traditional archery enthusiasts. The draw weight can be altered simply by adjusting the thickness of the stave during the tillering process.

The instructions that come with this selfbow kit offer suggested steps for finishing your medieval bow. These steps involve use of a table saw, band saw, or rasp. Pieces can be sanded by hand or with a belt sander. A round bastard file is recommended for creating string grooves. Glues, wood dyes, sealant finishes, and accessories are purchased separately. Never sand through bamboo nodes.
