« on: June 05, 2017, 11:35:16 am »
I got this stave from Clint a couple years back and made a bow from the belly stave for a friend (It made a very nice bow),This is the bark stave.
It has a Hognose  snake/Puff adder skins on it.
68" NTN
53@28
 1-1/4 wide 5/16" nocks
THANKS MATT






I heat treated the bell after floor tiller


The skin has a very faint pattern but mostly brown

That's a very pretty stick!  The full-draw is so very nice!  Is the belly dyed/stained or is the color from toasting the belly for a heat treatment?
