A variety of bow types in maple, ash or elm (according to availability of suitable timber)
includes self and painted cable backed (cordage) bows

Custom made

A wide limbed bow is ideal for decoration. Hunters may have used painted bows to break up the profile while stalking their quarry.
Pictured are bows from my own shooting collection: painted bows, a cable (cordage) backed bow and my favourite- the Mollegabet bow 
Cable backed bows have Dacron cable, bound at handle and nocks. This backing helps modify the neutral axis and reduces the chance of breakage and reduces string follow. It may need adjustment after shooting a few hundred arrows.


Best quality staves are essential, and availability can be limited.
All the designs on painted bows use natural pigments.
