Macura traditional bowyer

Welcome to my website, which is created to show you my bows, all of them handmade, therefore each one is unique. I've been involved with archery and bowyery since I was a wee lad.

Over the years, and through trial and error, I learned which combination of materials works best, and which combined woods give maximum performance. Experimenting with wooden bows also helped me making fibre glass laminated bows. Like many bowyers through the centuries, I am always looking for new models and different combinations of materials to create 'the best bow'.

The road to the Ultimate Bow is therefore similar to the search for the Holy Grail.
