About my bows
All of my bows are handmade one at a time in the age old manner.
About the bow woods
A hard whitewood that makes a good quality, sturdy (almost unbreakable) bow. All bows made of this wood are one piece (self) bows. Because of it's sturdiness, it makes an excellent beginners longbow or flatbow. Draw weights up to 65 lbs.

A South American boxwood, light yellow color. Lemonwood bows are always backed with hickory or ash. This makes a high quality bow and it is the most typical wood used for English longbows. Draw weights up to 75 lbs.
