Thousands of hunters, woodworkers, and primitive technology enthusiasts
have learned how easy it is to produce beautiful and hard-hitting archery
bows from solid wood...made from trees as they were thousands of years
ago...or from boards as they were often made early in the 20th Century.
It can be done in your garage, or on your back porch, using as little
as a few hand tools.

by Paul Comstock, is an illustrated 40,000-word how-to manual that has

wooden bows. It includes:
Instructions on 10 species of bow wood
-How to season wood rapidly
-Evaluating wood species for bows
-Longbows and short bows
-Straight and recurved limbs
-Backing and sinew backing
-Arrows and Primitive arrows
