After creating a tomahawk and bow structure knife, Clay Hayes utilizes the primitive tools to construct a sinew backed eastern red cedar survival bow from a newly cut tree. This video covers the whole primitive bow structure procedure. Clay starts by outlining the longbow from green bow stave and prior to backing the bow with sinew and tillering after the sinew dries.
Eastern red cedar remains in the juniper household and it is extremely typical throughout the east and Midwest. It’s changed by other carefully associated types, typical juniper, rocky mountain juniper, and a couple of other types as you move into the western states. They will all make excellent primitive bows if they are backed with some other product like rawhide or sinew. The schedule of this bow wood, the truth that it works quickly with hand tools, and likewise dries extremely rapidly make it an excellent option for a rapidly made wood bow or survival bow.
Including sinew will safeguard the bow’s back and include a lot to the efficiency of the bow also. As the sinew dries it diminishes longitudinally and will frequently draw the bow into a reflex or backset. This preloads the limbs at brace and leads to a more effective and many times faster bow.
This video is the 3rd in a series following Clay through the primitive bow making procedure. Beginning with utilizing a coal create to construct a tomahawk and knife from old rasps, then utilizing those tools to construct the primitive weapon.
The next video in this series will cover making primitive arrows from rivercane and hand creating trade point arrowheads (primitive broadheads). When the primitive searching equipment is total, Clay will bow hunt wild hogs with it.
