ABOUT SWIFTHOUND BOWS


I am Maryellen, Journeyman Armbruster. (Crossbow maker)

Most folks call me DW, for Dirtwitch, a nickname I've had for many years, that came of my love for gardening.

The first job I ever had was working in a woodshop. I had a skilled and knowledgeable manager, Tim Brown, who loved woodworking, and after work and on weekends, we made boxes, tables, chopping boards, and more, from the left over scraps in the shop. He taught me much and I found that I had a way with wood. 

College, then life marched on. 25 years later, my love for wood was DWrenewed, when I talked my way into an Apprenticeship with David R. Watson, New World Arbalest; of Austin, Texas.

David has been making crossbows for nearly 30 years. With his patience, guidance, and passion for  medieval crossbows and the history thereof, David has been a wonderful teacher and mentor. And, in the true spirit of a Master guiding an Apprentice, then a Journeyman,  to his/her own business, passing on knowledge and skill, David has excelled. I am now working on the bow that will be my Masterpiece, the bow that will showcase my skills, and usher me into the step beyond a Journeyman.

Thank you, David. And, thank you, Tim Brown.

You can follow me on my blog at swifthoundbows.blogspot.com, if you would like to keep up.

Remember, always Double Tap!

Best; 
DW
