I took a longbow making class at Woodcraft this past weekend. The class is 2 full days with a finishing class on the 3rd. The teacher is Tom Turgeon with Boise Bows and Arrows.
I had a great time in the class and the bow I made is FABULOUS! I'll have it with me at Gulf Wars if you would like to check it out. It is a bow that is custom made for me. It shoots like a dream and is a really good reason for me to set aside my crossbow and go back to shooting bow. I haven't put it on a bow scale yet but I'm guessing it's around 40 or so pounds. The bow is made from yellowheart with a bamboo back.
Tom teaches around the country at various Woodcraft stores. The class is pricey but includes everything but the rasps for shaping. Take a look at the class and consider it. I can testify that there isn't much better than a personally-made longbow.
