Bamboo is arguably the best primitive bow backing material available anywhere and our bamboo backing strips are planed flat on the belly so you won't have to do the work. With the belly side of the bamboo planed flat all that's left to do is to rough it up prior to gluing up the bow. Please note, some pieces may have variations in thickness from one end to the other. Prep work may be required. Approximately 70" to 72" long x 1.5" wide.
Note: Use a hacksaw blade or a toothing plane to groove the flat (belly) side of your bamboo before gluing.
