  • Q:

    I'm thinking about ripping one of these into backing strips for a red oak ELB 72" long. I notice all wood backing strips seem to be around 1/8" thick. If I ripped mine 3/16 - 1/4" thick would the hickory overpower a red oak core belly?

      A:

      Yes there would be a good chance of that happening. Rule of thumb is backing should be no thicker than 1/4 to 1/3 of total limb thickness.

  • Q:

    Does it already follow a single growth ring? Or will it need to be worked?
    Asked on 5/8/2013 by noobowyer from oklahoma

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      No, it does not follow a growth ring. This product is dimensional lumber. It will need to be backed to make a bow with it.

  • Q:

    Could I use this for recurve if I had a strong backing? I.e. sinew or fiberglass?

      A:

      You can use this wood to make a bow, but it will need to be backed.

      A:

      Make everything larger than you intend to have it when you are done. You can always remove material from the bow to get it down to where it needs to be.

    Asked on 1/31/2012 by John from Smithville, Mo.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes linen would be an approriate backing material for a Hickory bow.

  • Q:

    Does this wood have good enough grain to make a solid bow from and if so, what would possibly be max draw weight from it?
    Asked on 12/9/2010 by 64mech2010 from Alabama

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The Hickory Dimensional Lumber requires a backing material as the grain is not consistent enough to handle the stresses of bending without a backing material. I would not try it without as more times than not, it will break even at low weights.

      Answered on 12/29/2010 by Johnathan Karch from 3Rivers Archery
    • A:

      This wood could be used as a solid bow. The draw weight would depend on what type of style you use. For example a pyramid or flat bow design. The draw weight would range from 40 to 60 depending on the design.

      Answered on 11/8/2011 by Bow hunter from Hurt, VA
  • Q:

    Why is backing required? Im looking for hickory lumber like this to form my own bow from. Is the grain not good enough?
    Asked on 12/4/2010 by NewBowyer2011 from Alabama

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The grain has run out so it is not solid enough on its own to make an acceptable bow. It requires some form of backing to handle the stresses a bow is put through during the shot sequence.
