Itís getting so close! All the bows are looking great. Just have to get the finish rubbed out and grip put in.

Got the ok a bit over a week ago and just got a short green pipe dropped off at the post office. I should make more short bows, they ship cheaper.

So anyone that hasn't shipped yet, go ahead and do that.  According to my notes, everyone involved is at least very close to finished with their bow.

Please remember to post pictures of yourself and your new bow when you receive it in the mail!

Of you all remember, I had said I would be shipping out a couple of prizes based on some statistics I have been keeping.  I was a lucky recipient of a block of sitka spruce in a giveaway that TSA did quite a while ago.  I will be sharing some of this wood with two people involved in this trade.  At the beginning of the trade i decided I would keep track of who participated the most.  The answer to that is M2A.  Mike, please let me know if you want your shafts in 3/8 inch squares or if you want them planed down already.  They would still need to be sanded down and spined.

The other prize goes to the person who posted the first broken bow.  Stickhead posted the first broken bow.  Tom, please let me know your preference too.

Nice! Thanks a bunch Mike. That's a good incentive to work on arrow making again. I think I can work with the 3/8 square stock. That's very generous of you to do so. Congrats Tom.

I will be shipped out this week, the sooner the better. Things get just a bit busy this time of the year for me. Looking like Wednesday is a rain day, so figuring it will happen then.

I came home Friday night to find a package from Kyle sitting on my porch.  Kyle blew it out of the park with his osage paddle bow, this thing is awesome!

I will have pictures and more info soon!

Glad you like it SS. Honest opinion, how does it seem to shoot for you? Iíll let you know what my thoughts are, just donít want to influence your answer. But It was a fun one to build and am tempted to do another one at some point. I love how short it is.
