Hickory Stiff Tipped Flat Bow
This Hickory stave had two knots. One was easily put right in the middle of the handle, so no problem. The second one was about 7″ from one end. This could be a problem. I didn’t want to make it that short, so I decided to make the tips stiff.
The stave was clamped to a form green, and dried over a few months. It’s got a nice slight reflex, deflex.
Backed with rawhide and stained with Fiebing’s Leather Dye
