  • Q:

    Can this be used to replace a linen backing? If so how would you reccomend this be done, and what other tools/ equiptment would I need to purchase? Thank you.

      A:

      You can use this in replacement for linen backing. The linen backing that is on the bow now will have to be removed and the bow planed or flattened to accept the hickory. Once the back is smooth you will want to glue to Hickory on. Once the glue has dried you will then have to retiller the bow.

  • Q:

    I am building a mollegabet bow with 3" wide working limbs. How should I apply my backing strips? Would it be safe to apply two strips side by side, lined up in the center? Or should I apply one full strip in the center and then two 3/4" strips on either side of that?

      A:

      If this bow will need to be backed I would only use material that is the same width as the bow such as rawhide, linen or a piece of hickory that is 3 inches wide an not over 1/8 thick.

  • Q:

    What is the best way to prepare the hickory backing to glue? I have read where some people tooth, others lightly sand, and others just glue it? Is any of this necessary with a hickory backing?

      A:

      I use 100 grit sand paper to flatten it out then I use a fine tooth hacksaw blade and run it along the entire surface to be glued plus I will clean it with alcohol and glue it up.

  • Q:

    I received a piece of hickory backing that had a lot of grain run off. Is this going to affect the bow? I thought it might increase the chance of lifting a splinter. I am unsure if strait grain is necessary for backing.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      As a backing it should not be a problem. Grain run off is going to be more of a problem on a self bow or board bow where no backing is used.

      A:

      I apologize for the inconvenience. The hickory backing has been out of stock recently. We are hoping to receive some in the next week or so. As soon as it comes in the link will be reactivated online. Feel free to give me a call at 1-866-587-9501 or to send me an email at justin@3riversarchery.com for an inventory update.

  • Q:

    hi 15 and im in the process of making a ceder bow, i was wondering if i would have to back the bow in order to make it last? with a couple coating of polyurethane work? if not what is the best way to back this bow i am making? and how? thamks

      A:

      Backing the bow will make it last longer. Using a clear coat is something entirely different than backing the bow. For the backing you will want to use linen, bamboo, or something similar. Typically it would be put on with Titebond III or another hide glue.
