High School Shop Class Longbow Build Along
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:58:36 AM »
It has been several years since I have built a bow with one of my students and I thought that I might share the process along the way.  This young man is a Junior in our high school and has been in my class all 3 years.  This is his first bow build and he and I are both very excited.  He is building a 64" 45# reflex deflex with a walnut riser and osage face grain limbs.

Very cool.. Looking forward to this thread.

 :thumbsup:

I made your pictures larger.

You posted a thumbnail picture, which is fine.

After you select your picture from your PC or phone, just to the right of the little window where the picture name appears, click ( Insert Attachment 1 ). That will make the picture full size in your post. Second picture would be insert attachment 2, then 3, etc for up to 6 pictures.

Very Cool! I still have the first bow I ever built. Woodshop 1974. Everybody else was making speakers, they thought I was weird, they were right.

Awesome! I built my first two bows in high school shop class. Art teacher got mad that I was making weapons in school, but I got them done with the help of the shop teacher.

That is really cool.
Most schools around here no longer have wood shop classes.

We are pretty blessed in our small little school district to still have the ability to provide vocational classes for our students.  Our school district is kind of unique.  In order to provide these classes, all of our administration teaches at least one class.  I am the superintendent and teach a couple of shop classes.  Our Dean of Students also teaches a class and our Elementary Principal comes to the High School 1 period each day to also teach a class.  This is the only way that our small school can provide as many opportunities for our students as possible.

I was able to grab my student from another class this morning to get a jump on things.  Getting our form ready and preheating the heat box.
