BTW, I just watched the intro to a particularly earnest arrow-making video on "how to whip and bind your shaft...with particular reference to the finishing-off," but the innocent double entendres gave me such a violent case of the giggles that I couldn't continue. And his name! Oh, dear....
Yikes! He knows. He must know. It's an in-joke. The video then cuts to a completely silent 15-minute demonstration of feathering a bow.
...but what would you do when tillering out a bow? This useful guide, by Mike Grewcock, may give you some helpful hints, alongside lift music and men-with-beards.
so sorry to unbalance your lovely thread.
