OMG Bowmaking!

Bowmaking is amazingly satisfying. It's like whittling x10. Except you also end up with a cool thing to do a social sport/hobby with.

The whole process has been really satisfying and very gratifying. I never believed I could really manually create something of such aesthetic beauty and functionality and to see it taking shape under my hands and the tutor's guidance is absolutely fantastic. I can't recommend it enough.

The process is also simple enough for us to help anyone else who wants to make their own longbows; let us know :)
