My name is John Beecroft. At a very early age I became
interested in Native American Crafts. I stayed with my Grandma
and Uncle during the summers and High School and helped them
make Sterling Silver Jewelry, Arrowheads and many other crafts.
In school I took seven years of Woodworking, Jewelry making
and Leather craft classes. Before graduating I had a sixty mile
long trap line in Colorado where I truly enjoyed the outdoor life.
By 1981 I was employed by Tandy Leather Co., where I learned
even more of the Native American crafts. While working for
Tandy Leather I started going to Rendezvous and Pre-1850 time
period events as a salesman for the company.
The Rendezvous life seemed to have sparked an interest in me,
leading me towards a simpler, more traditional life creating
primitive items and weapons.
This lead to the researching of my family’s genealogy where I
found my family was well known as barrel makers or shingle
makers. So it seems that woodworking was in my blood from very
early times, dating back to the 1600’s.
In 1987, I started my own business and
began making bows. I loved doing it and
have continued ever since. On the average
I produce between 2500 & 3000 bows each
I am always looking for a new challenge. If
you want a bow hand made especially for
you, then I am the one to call. If you have a
new idea for something or want something
completely different, please let me know
and I'll try to take on the challenge. History
has proven that my bow making challenges
produce the most beautiful bows I've ever

IN NO WAY AM I REPRESENTING MYSELF AS NATIVE AMERICAN. I truly love the Native American
way of life and have a true place for it in my heart. I have built many different items, some of which you
will see in the next few pages.
I will answer any questions I can and look forward to hearing from you.
Please take a little time and check out our site. You will find pictures of a few of the items that I carry in
my online store located in Wichita Falls, Tx.
