Hi, does any one know how to make a tradtional wooden bow? What type of tree,what tools,etc...? I've been trying to find one everywhere for less than $40 dollars but couldn't.

Adam,
Idon't know what it would cost to build one but here is an article on construction that seems very detailed

and here is a supply company for materials

Hope this helps you. And please keep us updated (WE LOVE PICS )
Good Luck with your project,
Ed
