- In between things -

What do I do in between things...

Starting my first selfbow ever. I want to craft a (or several) true longbow(s). Feels like a 2nd hobby may be lurking. The wood is Robinia, which I cut in january. The wood preferably needs to (air)dry first. Now I've split the trunk and again let it dry a few weeks or months. Next comes the shaping/carving of the stave. Crafting a longbow is quite a processus, you need the right part of the wood, splitting technique, sap wood vs heart wood etc.

Fun times, especially in summer.
