The Ultimate Resource for Violin Bow Making Supplies

If you are coming to this site because you saw the bow maker Steven Beckley on the DIY Network's "Handmade Music " show, you can see his handmade violin bows on his violin bow maker site.

At BowWorks we supply all of the materials required for the people who make, repair and restore Violin bows, Viola Bows, Cello Bows, Bass Bows and other bows for stringed instruments.

BowWorks was started in 1986 by Steven Beckley, who is also a bowmaker, when he realized that a central source of quality bow making materials was needed so he could concentrate on his work of making bows and spend less time hunting down the materials that he used.

Over the course of years, he has discovered the finest sources of shell, silver, exotic leather, horse hair, and the other supplies needed for the making restoration and repair of violin bows, and other bows for stringed Instruments. He has gathered all of these materials into a single source so you can concentrate better working on bows and spend less time finding the quality bowmaking materials that you need to practice your craft.

Here is the index to our online catalog

Take a look at some violin bows made by Steven Beckley.
