From Arcos Brazil about the craftsmanship of their bows:

Pernambuco Wood selection is likely the primary factor in the production of fine bows. Many attempts have been made to quantify scientifically the attributes that make Pernambuco the wood of choice, however, like the fine art of making a beautiful Katana or an exquisite jewelry masterpiece, human touch and experience speaks much louder. Selection is followed by cutting the wood into bow blanks. This process is carefully carried by highly trained professionals to avoid unnecessary waste and result in blanks with the appropriate wood grain direction. The blanks are then stored and dry naturally over a span of many years..

Processing the sticks is important before reaching the bowmaker’s bench. The wood goes through turning on a special lathe, has an initial rough carving and is bent to the standard camber. Here and throughout the entire making progression, the wood is thoroughly inspected for flaws or potential weaknesses. The bone tip and ebony strip are glued to the previously shaped surfaces of the head. The rough graduation and head shaping is then completed by skilled workers aspiring to become bowmakers.
