I'm getting pretty board just living in the middle of nowher with nothing to do so I was wondering if anyone had any tips on making a longbow. I know a site that explains it, but without any figures/pics it's kinda hard to get around certain parts. Are there any books worth getting? I'd like to get a copy of each book to the Bowyer's Bible vol. 1-3 but I've read at some sites that it is a little to complex for the complete beginner. I also was wondering if anyone know where I could pic up a draw knife and a hand plane. Thanks for the input.
