Osage big paddle 76/26 (No. 112)
« on: April 22, 2020, 12:49:25 am »
I will continue the bendy handle row with an osage bow made from exceptional wood. This bow is fumed for a few days, the black surface on the back is slightly sanded at handle and tips to get a contrast to overlay and handle wrap. The colors on the back are black and mahogany, on the belly a warm golden brown. The handle is a hemp wrap glued on with wood glue and rubbed in charcoal, also particularly sanded. Tip overlay are buffalo, wide and flat to match the wide paddle design.
The wood is extreme dense and tough, the early rings are anything else than spongy, rings are less than paper thin. This piece has a fantastic elasticity and springiness. The reflex is steamed in, less than 1 set during tillering, now 4 reflex. Probably a candidate for flight shooting, but was thought as hunting bow (not for me, fd pic is far away from full draw).

I am always struck by perfect tiller, it isn't all that common to see, yours is spot on.

  Nice job, I did a projected mass weight on it and it came out at 494 grams, you were very close to that.
