Please note that this method is not used fir Korean horn bows.
Step 1: Bind one of the formers (tipliks) to the string-bridge end of one limb.
You might want to have the limbs warmed (but not warmer than comfortable to the touch!)
Step 2: Bind the former to a bow-stringing bench with something to lift the end up slightly.
Step 3: Bend limb over former.
Step 4: Repeat the procedure for the other limb.
Step 5: Prepare for stringing
Step 6: Stringing completed. If limbs are warm, they should be allowed to cool completely now.
Step 7: Remove the formers. Balance the bow.
Step 8: Shoot!
