Osage Static
« on: October 27, 2017, 01:04:03 pm »
Some of you may have seen a stave I posted in a thread called, "to wonk or not to wonk." Well this is the bow that came out of that stave. I included a few pics from that thread so you could see the full progression. Here's the stats...

63" ttt
47# at 27"
carp skin backing
leather handle
channel catfish skin arrow pass with felt on the bridge
buffalo horn tip overlays
yew underlays on the hooks

Thank you very much for checking her out  :)

If I could make it again, I would make the hooks a bit shorter. The string does lift off the curves, but not as much as I would like.

P.S. There's still a little wonk on the lower limb after steaming. It is bending pretty even though.

Thank you guys. Jeff, good eye. It's a darn shame about that ferry.

Looks good, and you are right with your observations. Seems you are on the right track.
For your draw I would suggest to make the next bow shorter (in case of osage).

Sweet looking bow came out of that stave. Full draw is perfect.  Should make for a nice hunting bow.
