I live and work in Port Townsend. It is considered the Mirecourt of bow making in the Western Hemisphere. There are several Internationally distinguished bow makers that live there hence its nickname.Ole Kanestrom
The Kanestrom bowmaking studio is situated on the Salish Sea near the Straits of Juan de Fuca. The shop is a stone’s throw from what locals call North Beach where Orca whales, bald eagles, and wild salmon make their home.
The studio is also just a few minute's walk from Fort Worden State Park, home to Centrum, a Port Townsend arts organization that hosts many musical and cultural events during the year, such as The Port Townsend Chamber Music Festival, Festival of American Fiddle Tunes, The Blues Festival, Jazz Port Townsend, Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival, and more.
