I'm a father and husband of four, at a ripe ol age of 28. I really have been enjoying the great people i'v been running into involving traditional archery. I started loosing arrows at age 10 or so after watching my older brother carve two selfbows. I'll never forget that day he said, watch this!, and kicked a soccerball as high as he could, swiftly grabbed his bow, nocked an arrow and sailed that woodie Smack into the center!! I'v been hooked ever since:) So my question is, with a couple of selfbows under my belt, i'm getting ready to glue up a laminated reflex deflex longbow.Once its out of the box and im to glue on the back of the riser and tip overlays, i wouldnt have to heat those up also right? Do i just clamp them at room temp? I'm useing smooth on glue.
