Osage Recurve 53#@28" 62" ntn
« on: September 17, 2019, 03:14:35 pm »
Here's a matching set of bow and arrows that I just finished up. I started with a nice clean stave for the bow and it was smooth sailing from there. It's nice when it works out that way. I need to remember these projects when everything seems to be fighting against me. I wanted to do a little stain work but not have it be too cluttered or busy. The bow is 62" ntn and pulls 53#@28". The stain was done with leather dye, and the handle wrap is deer leather with buffalo horn for the tips. The arrows are Dougas fir Surewood Shafts with self nocks and fletched with wild turkey feathers and deer sinew.

Nice rig, Weylin. I know just what you're saying about those smooth sailing builds. It does feel good.

That's a very nice bend Weylin. And a beautiful bow to.
Wouldn't expect anything else.

That is a great looking recurve!  I love the bend and your finish work is incredible. The turkey fletched arrows are really nice!  Thanks for posting.
