Make a bow for under 20 Bucks
Build your own car seat covers
Hickory wood is the best for a bow. You can bend it double without breaking. I made one, using a draw knife. I used to climb hickory trees, lean out and ride them to the ground. Carefull not to get stuck half way down. Pick a skinny tree.The Indians used hickory.
nice. could this be used for a cover for animals, for when they shed? good plan
shorten your string some. could also soak the wood and make a recurve jig for it would increase poundage and add a cool look.
