Definitely love to see how you transformed these arrows. Thanks for the reviews.
I don't think Nick realizes how many people he's gotten onto this hobby.

Hey Nick, I just finished my first PVC bow.

Thought I'd give it a try after stumbling across your videos and watching them for a few hours over and over again. But first I figured I'd need a work bench to do them on, so I built that! Three days later I built the jigs. Then to the store for the heat gun, etc, etc. Well, two weeks later I was able to build my first full on recurve bow tonight! (to everyone else, check out Nick's channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_U6Yek0YgKHN_A-iTAwZbg)

Works great, not perfect, but great. Your vids are so clear and easy to follow, thank you for all the work you put into them.

Also, you make it look so very easy. When I saw the vid of you pinching the heated up PVC ends for the nocks I thought sure, why not? I suspect your fingers are much more used to heat than mine. OUCH!

In the end, the nocks are the only thing I'm not happy with so I may just try the simple square notches for the next bow for my daughter. Easy. Any difference in strength?

Tomorrow I paint it up so will post a pic for you when 100% finished.

I hacked together the string, will need to find out how to do it properly next! And an arrow, quick duct tape version that again, showed me how good you are and how easy you make it look. I think I went through 1/4 roll for that one arrow.

Heat channel! Almost forgot. I had a 6 foot piece of leftover eavestroughing, works brilliantly for the heat trough. Thought I'd mention it. I even sprayed it with high heat paint that I had kicking around so it looks pretty serious for it's task. My wife was amazed at how much work I was doing before I even made a single bow.

Thanks again,
Rod Salm
One of the things I like doing the least when it comes to making archery tackle is building strings. They are essential as the main transmitter of energy from bow to arrow. Without a string, a bow is without life. That said, ...

Hey Nick, what kind of knot did you use at the top of the wrap?

Today's strip was inspired by an observation my daughter and I made while trying to find a working slushie machine in this city.

By way of my bro on an “epic” camping trip, here’s a toon he suggested for Death. I said to send me the details I need to put in for the minecraft lovers out there (well, just so they don’t get mad at me, I don’t build I draw) and I’ll do it up. Enjoy …

I've used Jade Signworks as our go-to supplier for over eight years. Never been let down and have saved my backside on numerous occasions. Highly suggest that you work with them. RS

The owner's great, on hand and one of the most knowledgeable book worms in the city. The nosh is unique, the coffee great, and so is the tea. All books are in primo condition, AND they have a basement full of books (closed to the public) so be sure to ask if you don't see what you're looking for on the main floor. Wonderful place in a wonderful community.

A well-treasured secret deep in the heart of Wolseley. Breads and specialty baking of all sorts in this small but famous city-wide bakery. Try the Morning Glory Muffin, my personal favourite.
