Bow Kits

New! Native American Style Hickory Bow Blanks

These solid Hickory reproduction bow blanks from Rudderbows all come floor tillered - ready for your final tillering, sanding, and finishing. String grooves are pre-cut and each bow blank includes a nice bronze B-50 Flemish twist string with neutral brown serving for a very natural look.

These hickory bow blanks are a great way to get some hands-on tillering expereince before trying to build a bow from scratch.

The pictures above are of finished bows - so you know what they can look like when you've completed them. You will receive an unfinished bow blank when you order.

Note: These bow blanks are perfect for sinew backing! The 60" Modoc bow, when sinew backed is just like a California style sinew backed bow. If you've ever wanted to try building a sinew backed bow - starting with one of these blanks makes the process a lot easier.

Hickory Flatbow Kit from Boards
Hickory Flatbow Kit These kits are a great way to learn tillering and some of the basics of self bow building. These kits are cut from edge grain and quarter sawn hickory 64" nock to nock and 1 1/2" wide. Each one is floor tillered and has the string groves already in place. Hickory can make a great bow. To finish simply remove wood from the belly to reduce poundage, the back only needs sanding.

Most of these kits will end up in the 50 lb range but you can easily remove more material for a finished bow in 40's. For heavier bows, just don't remove too much material. (I have made them up to 60 lbs and bear hunted with one.)

When you get them, these bows have no shelf cut in them so you can make either a right handed, a left handed, or even an ambidextrous bow. Most folks finish these bows out to be shot off their knuckle anyway.  Optional: You can cut in a very narrow shelf, and/or build the shelf out a bit with leather if you perfer.  

We get these kits from Rudder Bows Archery - They're very easy for a beginner to make and a great bow, and an excellent value for the price.

$80.00 + $14.00 over sized shipping fee, makes them $94.00 each. 

Note! Additional Shipping Fees Apply on All Foreign Orders.

Special Flatbow String (for the kit above)
