Making a bow..

I decided to try my hand at making a bow. This is going to be from Hackberry which is quite dense but I have alot of it. It started out as a large log like around 15 inches. Large I know but I can make more this way should I mess it up. After cutting I sealed the ends with paint, acrylic, and then after a week I began to split it. Wasnt fun without proper tools but I got it done, I cant use part of it but I got it. Now its drying out and I wait patiently. Also I want to try and make my own arrows but Im having trouble finding the infomation to learn. I will post pictures as soon as I can and along the shaping and tillering as I work.
