How the Bow is Made
Get a good clear stick of yew, or hickory will do, 7/8 inch thick, 1 ¼ inches wide, and as long as you are tall. Trim it down with a spoke-shave, or your knife, until the stick is nearly oval around the middle for about 18 inches, taper the ends of it down until they are nearly flat and are 5/8 inch thick and 7/8 wide, and then cut a notch on each side of the stick about 1/2 inch from each end.
