    There are no "failures", Just learning experiences.

    +1 to this. I've been researching bow making lately and would love to see how you made this one.

    I need to start start taking pics all the way through the process. This one I glued up in in form, shaped out the profile on the bandsaw with touch up on the sander and tillered the belly. I will say this was one of the harder bows I have made as the bamboo belly gave me some fits.

    I have been thinking about making a flat bow out of an osage-bamboo laminate. It is on the list of Stuff To Get Done.

    I have a very cool PVC bow I made for my for daughter that I will post when I get some pics. The PVC bows are cheap and work great. Plus they give the beginning bowyer some reference into bow characteristics.
