I uploaded the new web page my friend, Tonya, designed for me. She did all the graphics and everything, and she designed seven different logos I can change out whenever I feel like it. I haven't decided whether I should upload the corresponding pages for the build alongs or not since the build alongs already have lots of images, and I don't want to slow them down. What do you think?
Yeah yeah, I know. When am I going to do that arrow build along I keep talking about? Well, here is a build along by Sulphur, from the the leatherwall who does it pretty much the way I do it. And then there's my youtube video.

I posted three new videos on YouTube showing how I shape my tips and handles.
Here we are at the new url. Doesn't look much different, does it? Today, I did update the Another English Longbow build along. On Page 3, I updated the section on how to fix a misaligned string. It now includes four different methods for fixing a misaligned string, including what to do if your string is misaligned due to a twisted limb.
I posted a bunch of pictures of my bows on Photobucket in case anybody wants to have a look-see.
I'm making a violin!
I posted a video on YouTube showing How I make arrows. I plan to do a more detailed written build-along for this web page.
Steve Moore, from the leatherwall is currently doing the best English longbow build-along I've ever seen right here out of eastern red cedar, and he has me really wanting to do one myself. I've been looking for some cedar. Check out this one, too. It's beautiful.
Here's my email address: banana underscore nut underscore bread at hotmail dot com.
I'll try to answer every email I get, but I can't promise anything because I don't know what to expect.
I usually cut my arrow rests 1.25 inches above center. Sometimes I cut them as high a 1.5 inches above center.
