Subject: [SCA-Archery] Re: staves
The proper address is paleoplanet. net and yes, they will have the info you need. Just post a message in the primitive bow section of the forum.
In essence, a stave is a section split from a log. You can either harvest trees and split them yourself or purchase a stave from any number of vendors. You can also make a good bow from a properly selected board purchased from a store such as Home Depot or a lumber mill, etc. Performance wise, there is no difference between a bow made from a board or a stave.
