  • Q:

    What diameter of bamboo do you use for these strips and what species is it?
    Asked on 4/24/2014 by Joey from Fort Worth, Texas

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      We do not receive any information telling us what the species this supplier is using or the diameter is. If I was take a guess the diameter will be a least 5 to 6 inches.

      A:

      To flatten it you would have to plain or sand the backing to get it flat. And to apply this to the bow i would use unibond. Its item # is 4430-1.

      Heat treating helps to strengthen the cells of the bamboo and make them stronger. It is not necessary, but it does help.

  • Q:

    I am planning on building an english style self bow from osage would I use backing and if so would bamboo be the best choice?
    Asked on 12/10/2012 by Bryan

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You can use the Bamboo for backing. Hickory would work as well. It will be a personal preference between the two.

  • Q:

    I am going to make a bow out of Red Oak. I know this isn't the greatest material, but for a first bow it was cheap so I can use it to practice making bows. I'm wondering about the sort of Backing I should use. I first considered the imitation snake skin, but I think Bamboo would do better to strengthen the bow. What would your advice be?
    Asked on 10/19/2012 by Patrick from United States

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The bamboo will increase the weight of the bow a lot more than the snakeskin or a linen backing would. It will also increase the efficiency of the bow. Either way, you will need to back the bow with something.

  • Q:

    I am building an ash long bow and am looking to back it with some kind of wood. Would this work or would sinew be a better choice?
    Asked on 4/17/2012 by Anonymous

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      For a backing this will work fine on a Ash bow. The sinew will also work but will be more time consuming to put on.

      A:

      If you are going to steam the Red Oak you will want to steam it before you put the backing on it.
