The fuming looks superb :) Love the colours and can tell it would be even better in the hand and sunlight.

Love the color and character of that stickbow. Amazing what you can make out of an osage splinter. Thanks for posting your work here. Very inspirational!

OK, someone enlighten a nave semi-newbie:  What does "fumed" mean?

Please look here: http://primitive-bows.com/fuming-experiments/

If you do it yourself: be careful, the ammonia attacks skin and eyes! After fuming, allow a week or so to get the damps out of the wood.



Thanks again Gents, I'm glad you like her.
