Title: Simple osage...FD pg 4
Post by: PEARL DRUMS/PEARLY/PD/DRUMS on July 19, 2017, 10:16:35 am
I'll get the full draw pic tonite, I hope. Been a circus around home this week.

66" ntn, 51-52# at my draw length. The over lays and handle build up are ewe horn scraps from Chuck. The finish is one coat of shellac wiped on followed by 4 coats of Helmsman clear satin spray. Nothing fancy. Its a back up to my Baby when she breaks, and they all do someday, that's if you actually shoot them :)

Very nice PD! It's nice to see bows from people we look to for advice. Gives us a level to shoot at. Do you have a sideways view of the handle?

Always good to have a back up or two or three....lol.Very nice bow Chris.Nice wiggle and highlights to it along with just what osage looks like.Good shooter.

Nice bow, Pearlie. I've got a similar one in the works.

Nice work, bro. The horn looks cool on the heel of the grip like that.

This is as close to what you want as I have, Don. I narrowed and thinned here and there after these were taken. But, you get the idea. Its not nearly as difficult to "make" as it looks. Rasp and grab, rasp and grab, shoot, shoot, rasp and grab, shoot. :)

Thanks for the comments, fellers. I haven't posted my bows in a while. Figured it was time to share a few pics.

Post by: bushboy on July 19, 2017, 12:26:41 pm
nice one!i can tell by the brace it's dead on!
Title: Re: Simple osage
Post by: PEARL DRUMS/PEARLY/PD/DRUMS on July 19, 2017, 12:29:06 pm
Thanks bushy. The upper comes off the handle with a lot more reflex than the lower. It makes the upper look weak and very positive at brace. But, it balances and shoots like a dream. And I've shot at least 200 arrows from it with no change in the profile.

I'm the same way big guy, just wood shaped like a bow until its bent like a bow. Its just a matter of getting a warm body around to snap a few pics. Hopefully tonite or tomorrow somebody will drift in.

Know what you mean Chris, without Kim I wouldn't be able to take FD's either.  Kim surprised me when she said " it's his TP is why there's not a full draw pic.  :)  I told her she'd better be good because we'll be at Elm Hall soon, and You might get on her about all the "akerns" that were in KY last fall.  HaHa :)

Post by: upstatenybowyer on July 19, 2017, 06:53:08 pm
As great as wives are for taking FD pics, if you guys have smart phones you can do it yourself.  :) Just open the camera app, switch it to "selfie mode," and set the timer. The only trick is getting it to stand up straight.  ;)
Title: Re: Simple osage
Post by: rps3 on July 19, 2017, 08:02:10 pm
I didn't notice the extra bit of reflex in the top until you pointed it out, cant wait to see the fulldraw. Smooth looking bow all around. I too just use the timer on my camera. My cheap tracphone even has a setting where I say cheese and it snaps a picture.

Pretty piece of wood that looks like a bow Pearl. Really though love the profile and weight, should be a good shooter and backup bow. Waiting for the pdfd but I'm sure it's spot on. I'm still hoping to get a chance to sneak out to Elm Hall. It'll be fair week but I'm hoping we will be done with wheat harvest.

Bobert that little bit makes the top limb look more round at brace and draw. And about 1/8" more positive than a "normal" bow would.

Thanks again for the comments fella's. Always good to be judged by your peers. Makes all better at what we love.

Still no FD pic. I finally got my wife home from the hospital late last night, maybe I can con her into a 1 minute photo session tonite :)

Jake is my usual photographer because he knows exactly what I want to see in the picture. But..........a cute little girl seems to have him totally preoccupied the last year or so. Hmmmm? I don't remember that at 18 years old?

Just how I imagined it. Funny how much better it looks when your wife takes the picture than when Clint does. >:D  Just like I thought pdfd is spot on.

Ps we finished wheat Friday night just before all this rain Saturday. Thank God. This is real good wheat sprouting weather for any still standing. It might work out for me to sneak out to Elm Hall for a day.

Looks like your string is twisted up backwards in that full draw pic. Also it must be pretty loud to need string silencers that big, no big deal, it's still pretty.

Very nice bow Chris, looks like a shooter to me, mighty fancy grip you are putting on them now days. But we will have to agree to disagree on your statement that they all break someday  if you shoot them, I have not found that to be true, yes of course some do and some may take some set but I have many that has been shot a lot for years that still hold together Just fine.

You keep working at it Pearly boy and you're gonna get to be pretty good at this one day...  :laugh: :P ;D

"Backup bow" he says and then shows off this sort of beauty!  While I'm rockin a Krylon spray painted Zebco 220 from the yard sale last summer as my New rig, he'll show up sporting a G Loomis GLX with a Van Staal VS X-series, ...only to then tell me this is his backup rig.

Thanks fellas, thank you very much.

That stave is just another quality stick from Clint. I have got ALOT of staves from him and only once I got bad one that he would have never seen coming, typical of Clint he replaced it with two.

Reflex right out of the fade on one limb more so then the other is touchy to keep away from set.Nice job Chris.

The top limb did take a fuzz more set, maybe 1/2"? I couldn't stop it with the way the limb is. But, I'm okay with that and it shoots fine and feels even better.

Alright Pearl you got me on this one. I love the slight twist in the handle . This will allow for lower brace height without wrist slap. You all know I like the cutout shelf! The shot in reflex- deflex is also a nice touch. That's a shooter. Nice backup bow. I may have to borrow it sometime! Arvin
