@Irv This is my broken bow. I did a good job. 😂

My husband is going to see if he can fiddle with it. I told him that it is a cell bow, he can’t fiddle with it. 😂😂😂🤪🤪🤪 I am such a wise guyette. He hasn’t gotten to it yet, but he will. It will keep him out of my hair.

@cid and others.  You may be in luck.  I am interested in the work of Jeff Zimmerman, who made bamboo shaft violin bows several years ago.  Fiddler Magazine did an article about him (spring 2012, vol. 19 no. 1).  The photos included in the article were of too low a resolution for me to make out construction methods, so the editor sent me her proof photos (see below).

He used a dove tail joint to connect the head and the shaft together.  This can be done in your situation, although you will lose some bow length. A54FD189-B583-42F1-A2E5-843D4DCE6738.jpegImage Enlarger69C1CBE2-381A-44D7-9017-03BF87C10DA8.jpegImage Enlarger

@cid and others.  If you do not want to lose any stick length and have another donor bow available (or if your husband is handy enough to make you a new bow head), he can make a scarf joint to connect a new bow head to your existing stick.  

An elaborate deployment of this method was done by Cocker, again using a split bamboo shaft (see photos below).EC802D8C-378B-4518-8354-2DBAF4992D5E.pngImage Enlarger9C01F760-37BA-4820-99AA-D063346959E9.pngImage Enlarger

@cid .  A top view of another Cocker bow.  

Please tell your husband to resist the tendency to explore the use of an internal pin to achieve the repair.  I have tried this several times (including the use of carbon fiber rods and sewing pins) and have only been frustrated.EFAC12B3-359A-4941-8D82-5AFADD43DBD6.jpegImage Enlarger
