Any time Arvin but you would probably be disappointed in the distance of one of mine  :) Took a few pictures of the bows, I plan on giving the bows to them tomorrow if the ice and snow gets off the roads. Margaret Ann's is 45 N-N and Bodhi's is 44 N-N. Margaret Ann's handle is wrapped with brain tan strips stain with walnut stain, Bodhi's is wrapped with Elephant belly leather. :)

The strings are d97 /8 Strand  with a bowyer's knot on the bottom limb. Put some of them little finger things on Margaret Ann's and plan on putting them on Bodhi's when I find some more, :-\ I think that will help not having to use a glove or tab. :)

They took very little set and shoot a 1/4 arrow very fast, i think they will love them for at least a few years to come, then I guess i can make more.  ;) :)

It's a little bigger project for me--I've got 11 grandkids. Only the 2-year-old hasn't had his own bow yet. ;-)

Pappy, I hardly recognize you without your hat!

Good work grandpappy. Those grandkids are more lucky than they know, but they will one day.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Those look really good Pappy.

I agree with Pearl.

Iím also pretty sure that those bows will be used by them too which is totally awesome.

Pappy they will love them. My grandsons have a blast with theirs. Still some supervision needed with them as of yet but they are pretty cautious.

Pappy, or if you don't mind ...Papou...which is Greek for grandfather, those bows are just so special. I love the handles and the detail you put into them.

Those will soon be memory makers.

I was also taught no hats in the house. It was the norm of our culture when all men wore fedoras or bowlers or other fashionable lids. I chuckle when I see movies set in the old days and all the high society men are wearing hats indoors.
