Bow Staves

We offer only quality air dried bow staves.  Each one is cut, split, the ends are sealed and then we treat them for bugs. When you order a bow stave from Pine Hollow Longbows, you can rest assured that you will receive a very nice workable stave - we will not send one out that we would not use ourselves.

Wood is a natural product with its own personality.  Staves always have character and yours may have a challenge or two like a twist or some knots you might have to deal with. This is normal.  Most primitive bowyers strive to let the wood be the bow it wants to be and if you work with the wood instead of against it, you'll learn a lot more and enjoy a deeper connection with your bow. 


Take your time, get to know your stave as you're working it.  Embrace its twists, dips, and character.  When you finally get to the point of shooting it, you'll not just have a bow, but a trustworthy hunting partner. It is this character that makes a selfbow truly a one of a kind work of art. Welcome to the most satisfying form of bowbuilding there is.  We're glad you've decided to join the ranks of primitive bowyers world wide.


You can order staves below...  Please call us if you have any special requests or would like to describe the type of bow you plan to build.


Note: We have never and we never will ship a stave that we don't think will make a bow. We guarantee every stave we ship.  If you find something wrong and a stave fails because of a flaw, we will replace it. BUT in all fairness - We will not guarantee a stave if you break it because of a design or workmanship flaw.
