From Manny:This is a Eucalyptus bow I just finished.
67 1/2" ntn, 57 # @ 27", assymetrical limbs with 3/16" positive, the Guava overlays look more like Osage , finished the bow with a homemade finish that I just mixed a few days ago, the handle and the wraps are cotton.
I was very nervous tillering this bow for the fear of it exploding, but it tuned out to be a very good one, took very little set and the string is really tigth at brace.
I'll be cutting more of this wood  
From PA Bowyers:
Sweet bow, great job Manny, no wise cracks about the hair.   What kinda tree is that in the background? -Dano
Sweet bow Manny! It's an absolute beaut (bet it's one sweet shooter too!). And it;s good to see that you haven't lost your talents as a bowyer with your hair ! -Kegan
Cant hope for better than that with a wood you are unsure of.  I love the overlays. I havent seen osage with that beautiful two tone color. -Justin Snyder
Nice Bow Manny.......great Tiller....as Usual....but whats with the Hair....or Lack of ....as the case is? I really love the Bow....but that Backdrop is Really Awesome....What is it.....and will they grow in Texas? -El Destructo
