Character elm,sinew and turkey feathers
« on: September 08, 2012, 11:34:46 pm »
Hello all...Thought I would share some projects I am finishing up from the summer.This character elm is 54"ntn 64#@24 of draw,sinew backed.I like how sraight arrow did his turkey bow but knew I would never have the patience for that so I just glued on some L.W. turkey feathers over the sinew,turned out purty cool I guess.Not a big fan of short bows(wait till you see my next bow) but this one was a challenge to make and it sure zips an arrow,even at that short draw.!Thanks for lookin-Hammertime

Wow looks really cool. Can't wait to see a full draw pic! I'm personally a fan of shorter bows, so far looks like you did a good job.

I like asymmetry. So many bows I see are "perfect".

Long live asymmetry, character, and your own interpretation of "right"

Oh my!  I like that! That is some serious character!  I am very impressed with the tiller.  I would've pulled the last few hairs from my head trying to do that.  I had to look at it for quite some time to really see how well you did.  Very nice!  Josh

Wow, pretty extreme.. I expect you'll need a rest from 'character' after that baby!
