A little while ago, I posted a question in the archery forum and got kinda talked into building a board bow. So here's a build along. I went to Lowe's grabbed some Titebond 2, an surform rasp, and picked the best 1"x2"x8' red oak board. Straight for more than 6 feet. Good grain, only one pin not right at the end. I figured it would either get rasped out, or I could shorten the bow to get rid of it. Got it home, measured out six feet from the straight end and cut it to length with my Laplander, cause this is for BCUSA. I did my first layout according to the build instructions on Poor Folk Bows. Marked the center of length. Found the center of width with jute twine cause this is for BCUSA. Laid out the tapers starting 15" from the tips, and marked the center for a 10" riser. Marked the tip 3/8" from the back to have a taper to aim for. Started rasping. Then, because it was getting late I decided to cut the two foot section in half and glue it together for the riser. This was a mistake I didn't realize till a few days later.
