A native North American wood, Osage Orange is known for its resiliency, toughness, and striking coloration. The Osage Orange Riser Block makes a great choice for crafting your own riser, customized to fit your hand. Also known as bois darc or hedge apple among other names, Osage Orange wood was a popular option for crafting medieval bows even before the settling of North America, used by various Indian tribes. Its popularity has continued to modern day traditional bows, including pieces like this Osage riser block. This wooden block comes unshaped and ready for DIY bow making. When crafting your selfbow, be sure to also check out our Osage Orange Tip Overlays (GI-013). Medieval archery enthusiasts are sure to appreciate the quality of our medieval bow making supplies.
Epoxy or Titebond glue is recommended for attaching the riser to the DIY bow. Be sure to follow the instructions of whichever glue you use. Tools such as a band saw or rasp and a sander may be needed to finish adding this piece to your selfbow.
