Bamboo-Bulletwood-Lemonwood ELB Stylish Bow - "Corona II"
« on: April 14, 2020, 09:36:06 am »
Greetings from Finland!
In the beginning of this global corona epidemy I finalized a bamboo-cumaru-lemonwood bow and I named it as "Corona". Unfortunately after few hundred arrows a splinter popped out from itīs bamboo back and it was gone. Hopefully this is some sort of forecast for the bug also. So, I started a new one, a bamboo-bulletwood-lemonwood combo. Some 5 mm thick bamboo and bulletwood slices glued on lemonwood with Smooth-On epoxy with some reflex. After some bandsawing and rasping a new bow was borning. Nocks and arrow pass made from water buffalo horn and after fine tuning the scale showed 80 lbs @ 28". Several layers of TruOil, leather handle and dacron string finalized this bow now named as "Corona II".
