If you're only looking to create something that is similar (for your nieces), then a scrabble tile would work nicely. It's lightweight, versatile and you can cover it with a plastic dome. You really don't have to make it exactly the same way as the original item.
And I agree with Tess. If I were the other bowmaker, I wouldn't divulge my technique either.
