« on: March 31, 2020, 01:21:23 am »
Hi guys,

Here is a bow I finished this month for a friend. I made 2 bows for her, this is the first one. This bow shoots very fast and it it super smooth.

Character Osage stave with a piece of aged osage handle glued on.

Steam bent recurves and Buffalo horn tip overlays

62 inches NTN

#34@26"

D97 14 strands

thanks

Li

The hits just keep on coming. Very sheek. Like those big hooks.

One hella super hook Hedge Apple recurve. Made with a serious character stave. Graduate work right there. Hitting that tiller is must with those hooks or it'll show bigly. You hit it dead bang.
