Your best bet is to buy the 3 book set of "The Traditional Bowyers Bible".

Default buildng a bow

My son makes his own bows, and I worked on one together with him. Here are a few pics..
My biggest advice would be to never skimp on the sanding, and finish the sanding by hand.
Don't let it sit in a hot car when you are done, I lost my first bow that way when the glue seperated.
good luck. also, take pictures.

Next bow you or your sun make, assuming it is another glass backed, be sure to cure the epoxy at about 170 degrees F. If you do you will never have to worry about a delam due to heat. Besides, 170 for about 10 hours is the norm when working with glass and epoxy.
