Cutting, Planing & Filing, Varnishing:

The shaft preparation:
A precise band saw is used to cut woods into blank pieces. Top fine blanks will be chosen for VIPs. Different kinds of planes are used to give completed shape of the shaft, and mean while the burning heat source is used to form the camber. A series of files are used to give shape to the bow tip. And sandpapers of different grits are used to polish. A good combination of balance and weight are the final goal. Shafts are finely varnished by hand to meet their grades.
