    I have a good stock of less exotic materials that I can use and I can make a couple of bread and butter bows in a week or so. It's the arrows that will bug me!

    The butter side will be on the back of the bow
    Well that will make it less likely to slip in the hand, at least... but bread on the belly might be a bit spongy?

    Dodged the bullet

    It turned out that the adult couldn't come due to having just had abdominal surgery. The lad was ok, but really lacked the control and was a tad short on strength. Give him a year and he'll prob' be ok for having a go. He enjoyed shooting some of my bows, and was getting to grips with an anchor and not grasping the string with a fist, but I could see he didn't really have the control yet. As he tired he started letting the draw hand travel forward as if trying to push the arrow.
    He had a go with some wood working tools spokeshave draw knife and rasps and certainly enjoyed himself

    Heehee and a good time was had by both. I'm glad it all turned out better than expected.

    You'll have a young apprentice - he'll have made his own bow and be ready to shoot it!

    It's no good. I can't see the words "young apprentice" without hearing them in the Emperor's voice...
