  • Q:

    I'm looking at getting this for my first bow build and was wondering if I got the bow building tool kit #6305, if that would include all the tools necessary to make this a functioning bow? and if not what other tools I will need?

      Yes, with that kit you will be able to build a bow from the Hickory Flatbow blank self bow kit.

  • Q:

    can this bow be drawn past 28 inches without breaking or other types of damage to the bow?

      A:

      If you leave the bow longer and keep the limbs wider you will be able to do a longer draw length on the bow, but on a 'do it yourself' project like this, no one can promise you how it will turn out. I would leave the bow as long as you can and not do a lot of bow weight and it would be worth trying out.

  • Q:

    is this stave already reduced to one growth ring. or will I need to back it? Or work to a single ring?
    Asked on 4/2/2013 by indianabushcrafter from Columbus, IN

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Not all of the staves will be the same. You should not need to back any of them unless something goes wrong in the tillering process.

  • Q:

    To finish this bow, do I need to steam it put it in a form for reflex? Can I just tiller it and finish the grip? Im not supposed to remove wood from the back. Can I sand it lightly without hurting it?
    Asked on 4/26/2012 by Anonymous from Harveyville, KS

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You can steam and add some reflex/deflex if you want, but most of the work will be tillering. You will need to remove some material from the belly of the bow to get the weight down and to make sure that the limbs are bending correctly. You should be able to sand it lightly on the back, you just want to make sure that you do not take off too much material.

  • Q:

    During the tillering process, how do I know when to string it and test it for poundage? I don't want to snap it if its too thick and I don't want to till it too far so its weak either.
    Asked on 4/25/2012 by Goin' primitive from Central Falls, RI

      A:

      You will just need to keep checking the bow. If you go to string it and it is too difficult then you will need to keep taking material off. As long as you are checking it periodically you should not take it too far. If you do take off too much material, you can shorten the bow to increase the weight.

      A:

      With this bow the tips will most likely be real narrow when you finish it.

      With the thickness of this bow you could easily make this a 60# to 70# bow.
