Another use for the lamination grinder. Remove the guide to clean up your handle section especially the fadeouts. Use the section of belt over the rubber wheel. It's great for doing curves etc. I also use it to help shape self bows as well as sanding the edges of laminated bows. Daryl. -------------...

Mick, Basically the setup is an 8 inch bench grinder mounted vertically on a modified bench. Attached to the shaft is a Multitool model 362.

Hi Timmah,
Time to put the chisel away. Use your rasps, surform etc but not the chisel. Now is the time for the elbow grease. Best of luck,
Daryl.

Timmah, When selecting floor boards try to select boards that have been cut from late growth not early (heartwood) as heartwood does not have as good bending properties. The flatter the growth rings the better. If you want to spend the extra dollars hard rock maple is a good choice but for your firs...

Edward, I have been grinding my own laminations for over three years. For a outlay of under $300-00 you can make your own lamination grinder. This enables you to select your own timbers and grind your own thicknesses down to under 2mm. and any length you require. Maximum width is about 45mm. It is a...

Hi! Timmah, You have made the right choice in wanting to make your own selfbow. Milled boards are a good way to learn the basics of making a selfbow and if it doesn't work all you have lost is a couple of dollars but will have probably gained a wealth of knowledge. Basic tools will do the job but wi...

Best of luck with your shoot.
