Hickory board Bow staves cut by us, perfect for longbows and flatbows, hickory is used as we over in the UK have traditionally used Ash. Tool handles and anything that needs to be tough and good at taking a beating, excellent in tension and compression.
A very attractive wood with white to cream-colored wood and distinctive grey grain lines that oftern turns a deep brown when a finish is applied giving the bow a lovely patina. The heartwood can be cream, tan or reddish brown. The extreme contrast in color between the heart and the sapwood makes hickory easy to differentiate from other wood species.
A very dense timber thats one of the hardest woods found in the states making excellent bows of high poundage backed or not. The dimentions are 76" - 78" long by 1 1/4" - 1 1/2" wide and 1 1/4" - 1 1/2" deep, perfect for any project.
