Make a Recurve Bow from Hand Tools and Solid, Single-Piece Hardwood
Learn to Make a Recurve Bow. In three days, you will personally turn a bark covered log into a shooting bow. During this class you will learn material selection and harvesting, take your stave to a growth ring, read the character of the grain, lay out the bow design, and tiller it perfectly. This class is offered private property in the Santa Cruz mountains and will run 3 full days. The price has been discounted down from $550 to $450 to make it more accessible to interested parties, but for this reason food and camping are not provided. Please note: there is a $150 material fee included in your class fee to purchase your bow stave, thus the class fee is $300, plus $150 for materials. Taught by myself, with occasional visits from guest instructors, this class will explore each step of bow making so that you go home not only with a shooting, hunt-worthy bow, but the skills and know-how to build your own bows start-to-finish. All materials including bow stave are included in your class fee. All major group/shared tools are provided, some small and inexpensive hand tools (sandpaper, files, etc) will be required for you to bring. Exact location will be sent to you upon purchase. I hope to teach you all soon! CANCELATION POLICY This experience's cancelation policy is different from Verlocal's default policy due to me having to acquire a permit from the park in advance. As such, guests must cancel 7 days prior to the date of the experience, whether to cancel attendance completely or to move dates. By purchasing, you will be agreeing to this policy. Thank you!
