Osage Recurve for TN
« on: April 03, 2017, 11:14:42 am »
Wanted to get one together for this year's Classic and this one is shaping up nicely.  Here are a couple of teaser pictures from yesterday.  It's not fully tillered, have it out to about 24".  Needs a little tweaking before full draw.  This bow comes from a blank that Mike Scott gifted me when I visited them last summer.  Really a nice piece of aged Osage with some character and a hole in what is looking like the lower limb.  Right now it's set to finish above 50#, so I'll be sanding the bow down to finish just below 50#.  I want 47-48 for shooting.  I'll be posting more pictures as I finish the bow.

I like that profile!  You've got about 4 weeks to finish it up.
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

Good looking rig, Steve-O.

Looks great and I love the curves. You don't see too many lookin' like that.

Very nice. Assume the limbs are stained? Also is that a turkey in the first pic?

Nice looking recurve, Steve. I don't remember many osage bows coming from your shop. Apparently it worked out well.  :OK

PatB - I haven't done too many Osage bows over the years probably less then 10 total.  It's been awhile since I've made one having been focused on other parts of life and hobby over the last year.  But, the other projects are done, my responsibilities are being well managed and I've really found some new ground with my own self.  I'm falling back in love with bow making.

DV IN MN - The back is just dark with age.  This had been a blank left high and dry for several years.  I've just sanded it smooth and taken out any bigger nicks on the back and then the rest has goldened up being tillered.  That turkey out in the field is my dog Louie.  He is often kind of a turkey!

Appreciate the positive comments guys.  Look forward to seeing many of you in TN and enjoying your company this year.

Goat - hope to have a chance to meet you again sometime down the road. 

Best to you all.
