Tacky tease... complete!
« on: October 19, 2017, 10:02:49 am »
I'm adding the Tru-Oil finish and waiting for a care package from Clint to complete this new addition so I thought I'd give y'all a little tease...

It got here this afternoon, Clint, along with other stuff.  :OK
 I'll get her dressed up and do a fashion show later.  ;)

   Nice looking profile Pat... (-P  Still using that pine pitch shellac recipe you gave me years ago, it is one water proof cure for sure, rain cannot penetrate... )P(
                                                                            Thanks, Don

Thanks guys. It's been a fun project and fun getting back into building bows again.  She's 66" t/t, 1 1/2" to mid limb and tapering to 3/8" at the tips. I heat treated the belly of the reflex form. I hope she keeps that unstrung profile.  One of the limbs was out of tiller a little so I've had to do a little more scraping to try to even it up some. She's pulling about 44#@26" now and I hope to keep it about there.
BowEd, the quail is one of my wife's paper mache projects.just drying in the sun.
