Hickory Board Flatbow Kit
Hickory Flatbow Kit from Boards
These kits are a great way to learn tillering and some of the basics of self bow building. They're 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.
Each kit includes a B-50 Flemish twist string.
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 prefer.
These kits are very easy for a beginner to make a great bow, and they're an excellent value for the price.
