Self Bow Making Course Thursdays Feb. 12, 19, 26, Mar. 5, 12, 19; 6:30-9pm Find a tree, cut a log, split a stave, get the shaving bench out, file with the rasp, shave with the draw knife, do a little tillering, finish with some sand paper, burnish the wood, build a Flemish string and go outside and fling some arrows. It�s not as easy as that to make a bow, but with some elbow grease and common sense, you�ll have a shootable bow. Most bows made finish in the 45 to 60 lb. range. They are not toys. We�ll start with introductions on the principles of bow making and then give you an Osage stave, tools, equipment and help you make a self bow. This course is labor intensive. The fourth session you learn to make a Flemish string and �how to� on making natural wooden arrows. Equipment and tools will be furnished. This is an intense course with three instructors to help you. Tim Palaski and Ken Schlegel, Instructors. Maximum participants: 6. Fee; members - $160.00, nonmembers - $180.00. Registration deadline: Feb. 3
