misslemasterís hickory sapling bow
Here's what misslemaster had to say about his bow: Hey guys, just finnished this one up. Its from a hickory sapling 1 3/8"in diameter. One limb had that side view profile and the other was very close, so I heat tempered the whole works at the same time making it more symetrical. 59" NTN, 1 1/4" to mid limb then to 7/16" nocks. Finnished out at 48# @ 28" and shoots very well with almost no sound. The coloring is black rit dye over green rit dye mixed with rubbing alcohol. 7coats of tung oil with 2 coats of finnishing wax. thanks fer gawkin. Cody
