Diy Bench Seating With Storage Planshow to Diy Bench Seating With Storage Plans for Learn to make a Native American longbow by hand and become a DIY archer.

Michael Spink of Spink Wooden Bows in Pocahontas, Arkansas, was on a turkey hunt one day more than a decade ago when his compound bow failed him. After that, he began to craft his own wooden bows by hand.

Want to become a DIY archer? Here, Spink walks you through the process of making your own 68-inch Native American longbow, as well as the arrows.

How to make the bow

Ben Goldstein

Step 1: Find your tree. Steer clear of pine and willow. Use hickory, oak, and maple instead. Look for a diameter of at least 8 inches, which will require less carving. (Because bows are made from vertical slices of the tree, on a smaller tree the arc of the outside edge—the part that becomes the back of your bow—will be more pronounced, requiring more shaving to flatten it out.)

Step 2: Cut and split the tree. An 8-inch tree provides six or seven bow staves. Leave enough room on the end of each stave to cut off roughly 6 inches, where the wood might have cracks. (For example, a 68-inch bow needs at least a 6-foot piece of wood.) Keep the stave roughly 1 inch wide from tip to tip and 1 inch thick. Leave the bark on to reduce cracking as the wood dries.

Step 3: Let the wood dry. This typically takes at least three or four weeks but can be up to a year. (If you want to be sure, buy a moisture meter and wait for a readout of 11 or 12 percent.) The most flexible wood will warp into a bend called a reflex.

Step 12: Once the bow has been stained, dried, and sealed, wrap the 5 inches of handle with hemp cord using a whipping technique (above). Apply a light coat of glue, such as Titebond III, and let dry.

While you can cut your own shafts, you don''s too complicated, and even the smallest imprecision can throw off your shot. Which means making your own arrows is really more of a process of assembly than of construction.

George Retseck

Step 1: Shaft diameter is determined by the weight of your bow and other factors. Consult a spine chart, such as the one on 3riversarchery.com, to find the appropriate diameter, then order a set of matched wooden shafts ($35 to $50 for a dozen). Jalon prefers to use Port Orford cedar, but Sitka spruce and Douglas fir work too.
