english long bows

here is a project I have meaning to do for long time. I have shot archery from the age of 10. my father taught archery 50 year ago at the rec center I used to help set up the targets on sunday. he made all the arrows for class I never forgot it. I got tired of hitech archery and sold all my stuff. now it is back to the basics wood long bow and home made bamboo arrows so much more fun.
    So here are two english long bow and 24 bamboo arrows I just finished .  The one is oak with bamboo backing to give some exter zip, it is 68" long and a draw wight of 60lb @ 28". The other is maple hard wood it is 72" and a draw wight of 50lb @ 28".
