Great looking bow. Really like the way you did the nocks. Excellent job.

Let me know when you're done with it, I have some trim work to do around a window at the house.

See you soon buddy!

I thought you preferred Osage trim?  ;D

Thanks for all the kind words friends! Iíll try and post bows and projects when they finish up.

I should have used osage to begin with. Maybe I wouldn't have to replace it already!

And no, I don't want to shoot it! Last time I shot one of your board bows I about killed a man. I believe it was poplar.

No doubt. Probably the 3rd or 4th worst moment of my life.

That is a beauty. Also, the cleanest shop I've ever seen!

Long story short. There were about 10-12 guys standing in front of a 4 x 4 foam target. Ryan made a poplar board bow so several of us took turns shooting it. I had shot an arrow or two and turned to chat for a second while loading arrow 3. I fired it off and guy popped up from behind the target. Nobody had seen him walk back there to either collect an arrow or do something to the target. Very sobering moment.

After that moment, I think that was the last time a Target was ever set up there. I told Guy that's got to be the worst place for Target. About 40 yards behind it is the main path to get on the course. Just too many people there cutting through to the pavillion.

Sorry Ryan. Back to talking about trim boards

I totally forgot about that! That was terrible. Just the most gut wrenching feeling after that happened.

That is a beautiful bow.  Is that bow not backed?  I didnít know that was possible with a board bow?

Not backed. I never back my board bows unless I want to do a wood combination. Board bows donít need to be backed if the grain is straight.
