Møllegabet 3000
« on: April 28, 2021, 03:56:48 pm »
Hey Guys

...almost forgot to post about this one...

This stave I traded for a piece of yew. The plan was to do another selfbow in my beloved møllegabet design; the last one I gave away to b2w Martin.
After the fisrt shavings I quickly realised that it was a good trade for me and that I even could go a little shorter on this one. I don't have too much experience with osage but this one really seemed to be a kings-piece. I ended up making an almost-copy of my hornbows.

It really was my greatest pleasure to work on this stave. I almost regret I finished it so quickly. Got a few checks from (un)necessary alignement corrections. Still being very happy with the outcome. Great shooter.

Specs:
60“ ntn
50# @ 28“
8 strands of bcyx
564 gramms

Thanx for watching

hollowing the tips for lightness instead of narrowing?  did they seem to resist twisting better?

tricky stave, nice job. +

Very very nice.  Looks like a gnarly piece of hedge turned into a beauty of a bow.  Too bad you won’t be at the Tennessee Classic.  The “Osage is King” tribe would welcome you with open arms!  Ha.

thanx Guys, I really appreciate it! This piece of wood was a true lovestory. And as a polygamist I deeply hope to run into something similar in the near future  (-S
Willie: these levers are just a little spleen of mine. Off course they help a lot with stability. Executed with care they even can be made quite light. How light? I don't know...  ;)
