Hackberry Hammer finished - new bow
« on: September 12, 2008, 06:06:16 pm »
Well, I finally got my Hackberry finished.  I'll be shooting it at Pappy's shoot tomorrow.  It's 61" nock to nock and pulls 50# @ 27"
The tip overlays are Burmese Red Wood.   I coated the bow in Red Mahogany stain then sanded it until the stain was still in the grain then coated it in a tung oil / Linseed oil mix and finished with Tru-oil
