The Art of Making Selfbows

This book is meant to be understandable and fun to use. The topics range from the beginnings to the end -- cutting and curing wood through building a selfbow of almost any type and finishing it. Selfbows are wooden bows with no laminations in the limbs. Both beginners and advanced bowyers should find the book useable and worthwhile. There are detailed descriptions and directions thoughout, supported by over 200 individual color illustrations. Beside the usual how-to directions, there are sections on heat-bending, spllicing billets, shaping handles, and treating problems like knots, cracks, etc. Several unusual topics are addressed, such as suggestions on how to make a bow only a few measurements, reduce handshock, eliminate stack, stabilize arrow flight, shoot where you look, and increase arrow speed.
