The strips were about 3/8" or so wide.

Squirrel hide and or groundhog hide both work good for this. Squirrel hide especialy. It's an extremely durable skin.

Excellent pictorial.

I tell you I was stuck on the pic making the loop as I thought that
string was going in the loop from the bottom. It all makes sense,
now that it is clear it is going in from the top.

I am going to make one of those great looking strings real soon.
I am lucky my bow is forty four pounds. Perfect for that kind of string.

Thanks a bundle or
should I say a twist?

Awesome tutorial. I'm making one from squirrel and I have a few questions. How much wood ash should I use to slip off the hair? What width should I cut them and how many squirrels should I use for 50lb bow? Thanks for your help.

I also did this same procedure with a soft shell turtle neck once. Turned out to be good string but only for a light powered bow.

Well, I don't have a bow, but now I have a couple of strings LOL.
Thanks for the tutorial, gave it a try for fun this weekend and it worked great!
