Good looking bow, nice job on the tips too. Is the upper limb (with the knot near the handle) longer than the lower limb?

It looks like you have been making bows for some time. Really nice work. My name was changed from DeJean to DeJanes in the  1800 census here. The family arrived in New York in 1794 to escape the French revolution. The family was living in Paris before coming here. I still feel a certain affinity toward France. :laugh:

Thanks,
Greg

Hi Greg, dear cousin  ;)

Thank you !
Yes i  have been making bows since 1994.
I also feel a certain affinity toward your country since i read Jim Hamm book, traveled many times in North America. (Quebec, New York, Iowa, Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho, Texas ...) and of course fell in love with osage wood  :)
