Thanks Colin. I must say that I owned a bow (that's still in Colorado) about 30 years ago. I used to love shooting that thing, but haven't touches it since then. This should be a lot of fun.

Tool list for bow build.

1. Hand axe, Machete or large heavy knife. ( For splitting the bamboo and stock removal.)
2. Saw. Laplander or similar. ( For cutting lengths required, and string nocks.)
3. Rasp, Surform, Coarse file or Draw knife. ( For shaping and tillering.)
4. 2m or so of paracord or string. For use when tillering.)
5. Pencil.

I have a couple of Rasps, files and Drawknives, I can bring, but if you have any you can bring along that will be a great help.
Does any have a local Farrier near to them, they often sell off their old Rasps very cheap, and they are ideal for bow making. I'll buy a couple off you if you have them, unfortunately there are no Farriers around my way.

I will bring along a bunch of tools as well
