So here is that flattening jig. It works well for any bow, just be sure to make the board you attach it to at least half as long as the bow you want to make. This jig will work for bows up to 6 feet long.
To build it, you will need:
1) 2x4, 3 feet long and 1) 2x4, 5 feet long. These can be cut from a single 8 foot length of 2x4
2) 3/8 inch carriage bolts, 3 and 1/2 inches long.
2) 3/8 inch hex nuts.
4) 3/8 inch washers.
2) 3/8 inch wing nuts.
For tools, you'll need a saw, drill or drill press and 3/8 inch drill bit. If using hex nuts instead of wing nuts, you might want a wrench.
Thanks for watching!
