Tom Turgeon/Boise Bows And Arrows

Tom Turgeon/Boise Bows And Arrows


HI TOM! michael said he ran into you today! So glad to see your doing well!
Nothing like starting the week finding out you won a longbow right?! As an aspiring history teacher and as a historic reenactor I’m always following new pages and finding new sources of information that can help me with both work and my reenacting hobby. It is really important to me that we keep history alive and most importantly that we keep the trades and crafts of the past alive now more than ever. Im happy to add this bow to my growing collection of historical oddities and happy to support craftsmen like Tom and his team.
Awesome page and an even better giveaway
I'd love to get hold of one of your flat soled spokeshaves, please send me a PM. Thanks!
How's Tom doing. You have a fascinating business
Hopefully I'll get a deer with this bad boy!
When will your online site be done?
The website seems to be down. I am interested to get some longbow paint. Can you send me a price list please?
Thank you.
Another successful Bow Making Class in Columbus, OH. Thanks Tom for making it a great time and everyone walked out with a great Bow and an outstanding experience, as always!

After three decades of building long bows and teaching the craft for nearly the same, Master Bowyer Tom Turgeon is now....stayed tuned! Longbow building materials, tools, and instruvtion

Master Bowyer Tom Turgeon's Long Bow Building classes have been a sensation across the country! Tom currently works directly with our nation's Wounded Warriors, teaching servicemen and women in every branch of our US Military to build their own long bows. Tom has also been featured on PBS' "American Woodshop", published in "Woodcraft Magazine", and in the WoodWorker's Guild of America Magazine. For more than two decades, Tom has delighted archers, bow hunters and woodworkers with his 1-1/2 day, immersion class. In this 10% instructional, 90% hands-on workshop, students learn or hone proper hand tool skills to create their own heirloom quality, functional works of art. First-time students to Tom's classes will make a traditional bamboo-backed long bow. Returning students will make an advanced, bamboo-backed Reflex-Deflex Long Bow. Both classes will cover selection of woods, curing and tillering of a stave, stringing, and shooting a hand crafted bamboo backed Long Bow! Every student will take home a bow, two wooden arrows, a hand-twisted Flemish bowstring, and a working knowledge of how to "teach" wood to bend. At home techniques for applying a finish will be discussed or you can sign up for Tom's optional Long Bow Finishing Class to apply a dazzling professional finish to your project. Tools Required: All tools and materials are provided at all privately hosted & BBA locations. Tools Recommended: Turgeon Tools Flat Spokeshave #851315, Turgeon Tools Concave Spokeshave, 06B06 Wood File

Prerequisite: Students must complete Tom's Traditional Long Bow Class to be eligible for his Reflex/Deflex Class. Tuition: $395.00

Materials Fee: NONE. The long bow stave, bowstring and 2 arrows are all included in the tuition. BOISE BOWS & ARROWS is proud to be affiliated with the 03/11/2019

Survival Bow Wood Info....
While checking out my Tom Turgeon Instagram this morning I joined into a bow wood conversation regarding bow woods. I thought I'd share it here as well.
I hope the information brings out the Bow Builder in YOU!

dreamcraft_archery Its been my experience (I used Hazelnut wood dozens of times in my early #wildernesslongbowclasses) that Hazelnut lacks the compression resistant properties that other hardwoods like #Yellowheart posses. Most USA domestic hardwoods have very distinct winter/summer growth rings due to several factors. This brittle winter wood mixed with the more elastic summer growth wood makes domestic woods a bit more inconsistent. This, in turn, makes them more susceptible to "chrysaling" (the wrinkles in wood caused by repeated bending similar to the lines in your hands) on heavier draw- weighted long bows.
However, its not all bad!
Hazel's pros are: easy to work, predictable, available and great for 35-45# draw weights without risking string follow (staying bent without the bow string on) or chrysaling.
I'm really interested in how heavy a bow you can build out of it! We'll all learn from each other's experiences.
Best of luck with all your bow builds!

Who has built wood bows? My students are free to brag!
