An axe for bow making? I use a proper axe to split out the staves, then a billhook, then a drawknife with a shaving bench. Isn't an axe a little ungainly for work like that?

Re: AXE porn

Side axe for roughing, drawknife then spoke shave then scrapers.
The side axe is surprisingly controllable for mass removable.
When i first tried i thought oh bugger there goes a good stave but
once you master the thing its great.
Or you just fire up the bandsaw........

Where you shoot sir ?????

Some of my bows, all americam white oak, bottom one is best pulls 57# at 28"

Also have ash warbow, first one i ever made, was up at 90# at one point then the dreaded set crept in
Glass recurve hunters and lovley bamboo/lemonwood longbows that are super fast and smooth (paid for those)

Re: AXE porn

Nice! big_smile

I just dick around in the back garden with mine..
Had some initial success with Yew, from the bosses back garden, then had a go with Ash, but I keep breaking it, or finding knots far too late in the process.
I must go and drop another limb off the bosses tree...
Do you have a sensible source for staves?

Re: AXE porn

White oak from bences in cheltenham just raid the scrap piles.
Mainly for flat bows, nice and simple and damn cheap.
Other staves are aquired when out walking dogs....
