BOWYERS GUIDE
FIFTH EDITION

The art of the Bowyer, the
maker of bows, is as ancient
as the oldest of elves. This
tome details the construction
of bows, as well as providing
information on the sister
craft of Fletching.

Bowyers and Fletchers both
require a Fletching Kit to
practice their trades.

Fletching kits can be
purchased from archery shops.










BOWS

There are four components to
every bow.

TOOLS

The use of tools, while not
necessary in the construction
of a bow, helps to produce a
premium product. A whittling
blade will increase the
quality of your bow. A
planing tool is superior to a
whittling blade.

STRING

The most commonly used string
is hemp twine. One step
above hemp is linen string.

Only the best bows are strung
with silk.



CAMS

Most bows are not built with
Cams. Composite bows use a
series of one or two Cams.


LUMBER

The material that the bow is
constructed from is directly
proportional to the
performance of the bow.

List of wood, in order of
difficulty and quality.

Hickory
Elm
Ash
Oak
Darkwood
Steel
Ceramic
