I got a package from trapper rob today. Very nice Rob. 11 very nice parallel shafts looks like spine is between 52 and 59 most in the 55 56 area just right.  I think there was something like 32 I believe rivercane shafts?  I've never used it before so look forward to put a bunch together. Two nice lengths of bandsaw blades for making broadheads. Three assorted pieces of leather for handles and such. Thanks Rob.

Nice! You wont need arras for a good while. Those river canes will last a long time if you don't lose them.
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.

Got nice Mt Hood NF stave from High Desert, neatly squared, center marked, and ready to rough out a bow!  Now, I just need to figure out what kind of wood it is. >:D :BB.  Not familiar with the processed wood from the NW, except redwood.  Seems too heavy for cedar or juniper.

Bark looks like Yew. How about a shot of the end? Sapwood?

Methinks that stave will make a fine bow - when I get a couple more under my belt, shooting, of course!.  What type bow do you think?  I'm partial to Native American styles, and the Meare Heath is also on my list.  Chasing arrows is good cardio  exercise, chasing rings, not so much!  Thanks!

All the trades are a lot of fun, but I think the supply trade has been the most fun more me. Its really fun to see all the cool supplies people are getting, things that a lot of us wouldn't otherwise be able to get.

Hawkdancer, I'm a big fan of native styles too. Most native bows removed the sap wood, but no reason you cant improvise how ever you want. I'm glad you like the stave.
