Is there a forgotten way to make a white wood bow that can rival and even surpass the performance of modern longbows and recurves? Join Keith Shannon, Billy Berger and Thad Beckum as they explore a rediscovered bow making technique that will rewrite what we thought we knew about white wood bows.
In this DVD you will learn how to make a white wood longbow from start to finish, and how fire hardening that bow can unlock the hidden performance potential of “second-rate” white woods. Fire hardening will transform white wood bows of variable and lackluster performance into first class target and hunting weapons with no moisture absorption problems.
The performance of various bows is tested with a chronograph, showing fire hardened white wood bows outperforming Osage orange and even fiberglass. And finally, their effectiveness as hunting weapons is proven with a dramatic and successful deer hunt.
This professionally produced video will forever change how modern bowyer’s view common white wood bows.

Keith, wanted to let you know how I’ve enjoyed working on the method you teach on the video. Thank you Thad Beckum and Billy Berger. I’m impressed with the difference it makes. Two of the latest Hickory bows are shooting great! Planning to do more with some different woods. Got to try the Sweet Gum again. Appreciate your research.
