Build Your Own
WHY NOT BUILD YOUR OWN BOW?
Nearly a half century ago, ElMont L. Bingham, founder of Bingham Projects, Inc. envisioned a way to provide the avid archer with the means to become a do-it-yourself traditional bowyer. To accomplish this, he drafted How to Build Your Own Traditional Bow manuals, full-sized blueprints, and later, videos. He brought together the best component material and developed traditional bow kits. We have everything you need to build your own traditional, personalized bow.First Time Bowyer
Classic style. Responsive. A good balance of performance and forgiveness. Available in 60" or 58" lengths. 2" or 1.75" widths. Width is purely cosmetic. Some people like a slimmer appearance and feel.
Also called a three-piece-take-down, the Take-Down Recurve bow offers all the advantages of the classic, aggressive Recurve limbs, but with the added bonus of being able to take the bow apart for travel or storage.
Traditional, pleasing lines. You can choose between our classic 68" flat limb design, 68" reflex/deflex, 64" reflex/deflex, and our 62" hybrid reflex/deflex. Reflex/deflex models offer increased performance and smoothness.
Shallow Take-Down Longbow
This three piece take-down longbow has beautiful, classic lines and has great performance, smoothness and forgiveness. In addition to our 68" model, you can make any length from 58" - 68" using the same press.

Hi Binghams! I've been building laminated wood bows for several years, and at the request of a friend earlier this spring I ordered a limb package (50#, 2"wide) and built him a 68" takedown recurve with bamboo and uniweft core, using your plans. It was very successful and we were both very happy with the results.
Elmont, attached are a few photo's of Pronounced Longbows I have made. Thanks for being there to assist my efforts in making great shooting bows.
Here is my latest bow. 57# burgundy camo with black limbs. Thanks for all your help and fast courteous service.
Thanks for great products and support. I finished my first recurve. I love it. I'm starting a second one.
I’ve made several bows from your plans, from recurves to hybrid longbows like this one. Each have been a joy to shoot and build.
