Bowyer Lessons with Mike Meusel, Part One

You may recall an earlier post I made titled Bowyer Lessons with Mike Meusel, Part Zero. It was called Part Zero because I was all excited about the bow making lessons, but it had not actually started yet.

Well yesterday it started. We got the basic shape of the bow done, which will be a hickory flatbow-longbow with purpleheart hardwood tips.

Next time we will be decreasing the width of the limbs and starting the tillering process.

No photos of the bow at this time, although in the future there will be. Next lesson is next Thursday.

Subscribe to stay tuned!


And FYI, in case you are wondering the bow-making lessons are $300 for 3 lessons. Each lesson is approx. 3 to 4 hours long.
