Build Your Own Double Laminate Longbow

Build Your Own Double Laminate Longbow

Hickory as the backing wood, black walnut as the belly wood. A beautiful contrast with the creamy, golden grain of hickory set against the dense deeply colured black walnut. Well suited to heavy bows. Just one of the many combinations available here. 

We love the English longbow, its iconic and deadly, used by our ancestors for a very, very long time, even resisting the firearms that’s eventually superseded it.

The style is the Medieval war bow, which has slightly different design features to a butt/target bow. The medieval style offers bows of heavier weights far more security, whilst spreading the higher forces across more of the bow and slightly through the handle. This is called full compass.

All the bows are tilered to full compass for strength and security. The length of the bow varies, most of my mid weight bows are around 74" - 76", heavier bows go up to 80". Don't get to wrapped up in this as a longer bow is a safer bow and smoother to shoot, unless your very small we'll make the call on length relevant to the poundage you choose.
