Archers long for equipment that meets their personal needs. Here are detailed, step-by-step instructions to enable them to equip themselves with personal finger guards, belt pouches, tension springs, string holders, and ten types of quivers. Learn to make bowstrings, targets (from simple to imaginative), and fittings, and gain information to make arrows especially crafted to meet an archer's individual needs, including shafts and feathering. Over 600 color photos illustrate the instructions. Fourteen experienced archers have developed this instructive text from their own practice and testing. Together, they provide information necessary to make their own archery equipment with leather, wood, antler, and bone.
Great reference, even with the errors

This book is a great beginning reference for archers who want to get into putting together their own gear. There are some nice ideas for projects and some great info about fletching arrows. The beginning part of the book gives a bit of introduction to leather working crafts, though you'll probably need to do a little more research before fully diving in. I've found most of it easy enough to follow but there are numerous typos and page layout errors. As well as some unclear references to things not explained. However I've found it rather useful over all and would recommend it for any archer's collection.

Oh I like this book, easy reading and a good resource of information. If you are a novice, it is good for references but if you are a beginner, it is a wealth of knowledge. Clear text and comprehensible, plenty of pictures and clear drawings, well put together. I would highly recommend it to anyone!
A project starter

If you have the inclination to build some or all of your own traditional or primitive equipment this is a good book to own. It gives some examples of things made by enthusiasts in Europe, if nothing else it adds to ones knowledge and may expand your imagination in designing and building some of your own projects. If you love traditional/primitive archery it's fun to share other viewpoints from a variety of sources. The satisfaction of making your own stuff is very rewarding.
