Follow along as I make a recurve bow from a hickory tree.
This one draws a little over 40# at 28”. It’s 60” ntn and about 1” at the widest. I heat treated with a silicone strip and stained with various wild and garden flowers. The arrow pass is cherry bark, and there’s one in birch bark on the other side for ambidextrous shooting. The string is fast flight and the grip is veg tan leather, tooled with antler tines and stained with the same flowers. August 2020 Primitive Archer Magazine Bow of the Month
