    Making a Longbow Ben's new project :)

    Hi Guys and Girls

    I have been pretty quiet on here for sometime I thought I would chill out and watch all of you get up to Anyway I ordered a Longbow Stave from a site called Beyond 200 who I found doing Google searches he is a link to them http://www.beyond2000bc.co.uk/index.html

    Anyway after chatting to the guy there I have the basics now of what I need to build my own Longbow. After my little bit of success with my arrows and the Hazel Bow which I still have I have decided to try and make my own

    I have also bought this book so I hope I can get somewhere with it Modern Longbow Design & Toxophilus Longbow Design Refined By Ascham: A voice from the past ISBN9781471606120. So if any of you might have any tips for good books or making bows and can help that would be cool

    Anyway I will take some pictures in the morning of the things I got in the post today and when I get started on the bow post some updates on here for yous if yous are interested

    Great project, and I have done a course with them. They are absolutely fantastic and very passionate.
    Good luck with your bow, and will wait for updates.
