          I recommend watching the video over and over several times before starting to building your bow. There Is a lot of info on self bow makeing. It is a little confusing on the bending and steaming of the bow. Over all good video on self bow making.

              This DVD was a great purchase. I know that I learned quite a bit from watching it. I even re-watched it a couple days later and learned even more. Funny side note, I found out after I watched this the first time that Gary Davis lives about 20 miles from me. So this DVD was helpful to me in knowing how someone from my neck of the woods operates.

                Hi guys, stickslinger here I have been getting into selfbow and laminated wooden bow building and this is THE dvd! It covers every step in the process clearly and well and explains EVERYTHING from bow wood harvesting to reflexing the bow! One buddy commented his voice was perfect for the job! I know with practice MOST who watch this dvd can make a selfbow. I must warn however he does refence the Bowyers Bible Vol.#1 so I recomend getting that with this dvd. His process is clear and simple.He covers bow design and preformance in some ways. He shows how to snakeskin back bows. I definitely reccomend this dvd!(p.s) If you are looking at the laminated war bow dvd get this one in addition to or in stead of it as this one covers more and the other dvd and is for those with some foreknowledge. Shoot safe, have fun!- stickslinger

                This is an excellent bow making video!!! I just gave it four stars because I am a beginner and I am more into making primitive bows using primitive methods rather than machines. However, this video will definitely come in handy for me in the future and I did learn some new things.

                Gary Takes you through the entire process from selcting a tree to tillering the bow. While making a bow isn't simple he breaks it down into easy to digest steps and completes each step before moving on to the next. I talked to another shooter at the IBO championships in Clarksville Tennesee that Gary holds clinics on bow making and did one at the we shot at. If he does this again I am for sure going to attend. I read about Gary in Primitive Archery magazine they did a story on him holding a clinic in Ohio. It was very informative and the participants had a finished bow at the end of three days and were shooting them. I would recomend this to anyone interested in making a self bow.

                  Gentlemen:
                  I am trying to make a self-bow from Osage and I am having a hard time with tillering,and this DVD has helped with what to look for and do doing the process. The video does a good job or showing how to lay out and use a bandsaw to reduce the stave quickly. It also was informative on how to heat treat a bow for straightening and reflexing.
                  Over all the video was very informative and full of information from locating,choosing,splitting osage tree,what to look for when choosing growth rings. Could show in more detail the tillering process to help others beginners in this one of the most important part of bow building.
                  Thank you,

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I received my order promptly, and upon arrival i immediately watch the video and used the information.

                  This came with the bow making starter kit I bought. This is a great and informative DVD! My wife watched it with me and she's not even in to bow making. It has plenty of narration and good info. Tells you what you need and how to use the stuff in the kit. Is as advertised. Would recommend.

                    I would recommend this DVD to anyone interested in learning to make self bows. The content covers from selecting trees to finishing the bow. I am hoping I can apply the lessons to some of our native species here in Australia.
