Jack Farrell * Exhibitor * at the 19th Annual Texas Bamboo Festival - Saturday - Sunday, September 24-25, 2011

Jack Farrell is a professional carpenter/woodworker with more than 40 years of experience. One of his lifelong hobbies has been the making and shooting of traditional archery equipment. Though he has incorporated bamboo as a bow and arrow making material since a youngest age, recent trips to Asia have solidified the use of these materials into his repertoire. Jack will demonstrate how you might begin making your own traditional archery gear incorporating these available materials.
