Making a horn bow - How to make a composite bow

Ғылым және технология

In this video you will see the making of a horn bow.
These bows are also called Turkish composite bows or reflex bows.
The bow is made of wood, horn and animal sinew.
All parts are glued together with a glutin glue (isinglass glue).
Bows have been made from these materials for centuries.
0:00 Intro
0:13 Wood core
5:09 Horn clasp
8:31 Elaborate bow shape
10:15 Sinew coating
12:23 Bone pieces
13:50 Tiller (bending of the bow)
14:44 Bow ends
15:27 Test shooting
16:07 Birch bark
19:21 Shooting bow
The manufacturing process has remained the same over the centuries.
Today, machines such as band saw, planer, etc. facilitate the manufacture.
Fire is replaced by a hot air dryer and heat lamp.
However, most of the work is still done by hand.
Materials and additional info for those interested:
-The wood core is made of sycamore maple.
Other woods such as ash or yew can also be used.
-The horns are from domesticated water buffalo.
The last horn purchase was years ago. Unfortunately, the supplier no longer exists.
-The deer back tendons are the same as the horn. Bought years ago, supplier no longer exists.
Tendons from ostrich, cattle, red deer, etc. can be used just as well.
-With birch bark it is always a matter of luck that one gets which can be separated easily in the thickness.
-Glutin glue (isinglass glue 100gr./€ 60.--).
Alternatively, rabbit glue or hide glue (100gr./€ 5.--) can be used. Both cost only a fraction of the isinglass.
Data from the filmed bow:
-draw weight 45 pounds at 28 inches.
-String length 113cm (Dynema D75).
-Bow weight 340 grams
I have been building and shooting bows for about 17 years. Turkish reflex bows in particular.
Bow building is a wonderful hobby and has taught me many things.
My interests have shifted towards shoemaking for a few years now.
So that my more or less great knowledge is not completely lost, I have filmed the bow making.
Have fun watching .......

    У нас, у Башкир, лук обвивался полностью берестой в самом конце, не в декоративных целях. Береста как кожа для лука, она в воде не гниёт (его можно долго использовать в непогоду, дождь и снег), а также поддерживает оптимальную влажность внутри, не давая рассыхаться композиту. Привет из Урала!))

    You can use the tip of the horn to make an archer ring. Since the thumb is used in Eastern bows, a special ring is used for it. We call it Zihgir. Some men in Turkiye still use these rings as jewelry. Those used as jewelry are mostly made of silver or precious stones. But the one I use for archery is made of buffalo horn. Really much better than metal, leather and plastic ones. It fits perfectly because it was made specifically for me.

    Fascinating craftsmanship based upon millennials old techniques and materials from the Far East and Steppe regions. The original horn bows functioned wonderfully in desert regions but came apart in the humid regions. They were remarkably different than this example. I suspect that as with other surviving ancient crafts there were necessary modifications to adapt to changing situations. There area many online histories of the original horn bows and may be some videos of historic recreations. This tutorial is a welcomed documentation that the ancient ways are still viable. My greatest thank to this remarkable bowyer.

    Beautiful bow, kinda reminds me Ottoman style. Bows like this were made short for horseback mounted archery. Also Ottomans (as well as Mongolians, Manchu and Korean archers) use special thumb ring with arrow going on right side of a bow, with this hold arrow doesn't move during horseback ride and draw length is increased (for me it's like 97 cm with european three finger technique and 105 with asian thumb technique) which is the great advantage since recurve bows need less draw force when fully drawn (longbow, for example, need more draw force the more you draw it). Also during arrow release bow naturally rotates which allows using it without left hand bowstring protection. P.S. All this info is just an interesting information I thought would be nice to share 😁

    몽골의 활재작 명인들도 몽골의 활은 한국의 제작기법으로 들어왔다고 했으며 한국의 복합궁의 제작 기법과 애깃살 화살의 제작과 쏘는법은 국가적 비밀이기에 수없이 중국이 침략해서도 그 기법을 알아내지도 못 했고 흉내내지도 못했기에 몽골에서 유래 되었다면 중국도 복합궁을 만들었을것이며 우리가 중국보다 늦게 복합궁을 만들었을것 이지만 중국은 복합궁 재작 기록이 없으며 몽골은 복합궁의 재료가 되는 여러 나무와 바다생선의 부레를 이용한 본드나 여러 접착기술등을 구하기 힘들기 때문에 복합궁의 재작 방식 자체를 생각할 수 없는 환경 입니다

    J'adore le tir à l'arc. A 15 ans j'ai construit un long bow. Je savais seulement que le frêne est un bois flexible donc j'ai acheté une planche de cette essence et patiemment, je lui ai donné les formes voulues avec seulement une râpe à bois. Le résultat a été très décevant. Quand j'ai placé la corde, les branches ne pliaient pas de la même façon et l'arc n'avait pas de force. Les flèches crevaient à huit mètres et me suis finalement acheté un arc. Si j'avais pu voir ce reportage à l'époque, je n'aurais jamais essayé d'en construire un.

    How would an ancient scythian made the original bow without powertools?? Just think how clever these ancient folk were to construct such an intricate piece of art which was the machi e gun of its day, truly amazing. Bravo

    Ganz großes Kompliment!! Ich habe schon einige Videos gesehen, welche einen Hornbogen gebaut haben aber noch nie mit einer solchen Perfektion. Die vorbereiteten Hilfskonstruktionen bzw. Werkzeuge zeigt von langen Vorbereitungen und probieren.. Toll! Ich würde gerne einen solchen Bogen kaufen. Ist das überhaupt möglich? LG. Herbert

    Thank you for your question. I started with longbows made from one piece of wood. The first bows are broken. When the first horn bow videos appeared on youtube (about 15 years ago) I started to build these bows as well. In almost every video there was something I could learn. I've been building bows for 17 years, so that gives routine. Working as a carpenter helps with precision. And the most important things are enthusiasm (fire), patience and perseverance.

    I actually learned this is Korean traditional bow, which originated from ox bone bow about 2000years ago which is before Ottoman. Turks may have learned that because they were near Korea at then.
