    Default Short film on bowmaking and archery

    The description says the gentleman is Irish, but the Swiss flag hanging up and his accent lead me to wonder. Still doesn't take anything away from the pleasure and inspiration of seeing a bowyer at work.

    Great video. Loved the whole feel of the thing and the way it made me want to pine away for hours in my workshop creating more long bows with my 3 sons. I really like the self-nocks and wrapped fletchings and watching the beauty of the long bow taking shape through his craftsmanship. Less really is more. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm guessing a Swiss'r living in Eire, maybe Will Tell's progeny??

    Great!
    I almost needed subtitles but I enjoyed it.
    Any guess on that core wood?
