Elm Hall donation bow
« on: July 22, 2017, 10:50:43 am »
Like Pauly I built and will donate an elm bow (harvested from club grounds) to the Pine River Rec Club to raffle off in support of the Elm Hall shoot. Its a fantastic shoot and worth the effort. The bow is 69" ntn, 53 @ 28. Not sure what the over lays are, Patrcik gave the wood to me at Marshall 2016. Maybe he will remember. The back is dyed with yellow and grey dye, it made a green tint. I faded the tips with steel wool and then wiped extra grey stain mid way to try to break it up some.

Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Thanks guys. It shoots very, very nice. It has a 4" handle and 4" fades. Talk about smooth and shock free. Wish it were mine to keep, because I would in a second.

Seeing these bows of yours is very inspiring. For me they represent everything I love about the craft; beautiful in their form and function. Spot on tiller. Bow making at its finest.  :BB
