Roughed out Ipe Bow Floor Tillered Stave 68" - 72"Item Number: 86006
Imagine crafting your very own custom ipe wood bow. This floor-tillered ipe stave is ready for you to shape and create to your liking.
This single piece ipe wood stave has been roughed out and floor-tillered. It's up to you to finish shaping, sanding, and backing to your liking. Backing, and tip materials are sold separately.
You will need to glue the backing to the belly. We recommend Smooth-On EA 40 Bow Glue. Once the backing is glued to the belly, you will need to shape your bow to your particular desire. We recommend buying our 3Rivers Archery's Bow Building Tool Kit to ensure you have all the tools you need. You will also need a square and pencil.
To complete your bow you will need to do a final tiller. We also recommend adding a finish to your bow to extend the life and protect the wood.
The stave comes in lengths varying between 72" and 68". They are approximately 1½" wide and 3/4" deep (at the grip).
