Pin Knot Check.
« on: November 07, 2018, 01:50:25 pm »
Hey folks,
Been a while since I've been on.   Focusing less on bow-making and more on bow-shooting and trying to get some deer with said bows. 
Either way, I'm working on a build right now, my first full Osage stave.   I just wanted some advice on these pin knots.  Did I chase them correctly? Anyone see any violations?  They seem to poke out a lot more than pin knots I've seen on a lot of other Osage bows. 
Any advice is appreciated. 
Thanks!

Imho you did a great job, I think that you can reduce the 2nd pin a little bit. Remember to leave extra width where the pins are.

You're doing fine with those pins. What is the brownish coloration around the pin in the next to the last 2 pics?

not sure. Just seems to be a touch of reddish blush in that area. Doesn't seem any different structurally.

Looks good from here.
Looks like you have some extra wood around some of those knots that you can clean up. Looks linearly wood.
When I tiller knotted area I leave them a little flatter than the rest of the limb.
Also, if an area is heavily knotted I leave it a little wider.

Hey man!
Good to see you on here.
I can't see anything wrong with those at all. Better looking than what I end up with.

 Thanks guys! Good to know I'm on the right track.  There just seemed to be so many super thin rings around those knots, it's hard to see where the ring ends and flows around the branch.
