      Ancel Et Al,
      Ancel's question begs another question, why not simply learn to make a bow of an SCA period material?  If you are going to use modern materials, you may as well purchase a ready made modern bow.  The same internet that makes it possible for us to easily find plans for making bows out of PVC, allows us to purchase dried wooden bow staves.  People in the SCA keep putting the car before the horse.

      Interesting. Though it begs the question: how much time, skill, tools and instruction would it take?

      I just added some additional photos of PVC bows by the Backyard Bowyer to the photo section of the group. If all you have even seen of PVC bows is the unformed and unpainted pipe with the lettering still on it, you should take a look at these photos which show what can be done to make PVC look period and attractive.
