Home Arrows Bows Philosophy FAQ Contact Links


...to CustomArcheryDotNet. My name is David Sinfield and I make bows and arrows.

This isn't my full time job. I'm an IT consultant and I make bows and arrows for relaxation and fun.

I have been making bows for a few years. I started because I fancied owning something that I had made that would shoot an arrow. Then I got hooked. I was making far more than I could possibly shoot (or even store.) Recently I have started taking commissions, in the first instance from friends and now it has expanded to friends of friends and I have even sold one on ebay.

The arrow making is a more recent venture. The real impetus came when a colleague asked me to make bows for himself and his daughter. I suggested that some aluminium arrows were his best bet because they are more durable and mendable in the event of accidents. In the face of his insistance I made him and his daughter half a dozen each. I buy the parts in dozens so I had 6 light and 6 heavy arrows left so I took a chance and put them on ebay. They sold and were well received. Out of the ebay listing I got several enquiries regarding bows.
