      My understanding is that wooden horsebows don't work well; wood just
      simply won't stand up to the amount of stretching/compression that
      takes place in the working sections of the bow. Hence, the use of
      horn, sinew, and bamboo, and wood was only used for the core and
      siryaahs (sp?)

      I intend to someday give it a try, but have expectations of nearly
      immediate bow failure.
