Beautiful bow with an even better story. Shows the amount of experience gordon's got.

Did well enough to get my vote. Well done.

congrats,

it was the build along that did it for me,

I learned as much from that as i have from all my bows so far,

I still find myself referencing back to it.

    The pictures really don't do the bow justice.  It is a piece of art and reflects Gordon's  skill.  Those of us who know him and see his work on a day to day basis probably take his work for granted, so it is so nice to be reminded just how good his work is.  The build-a-long has gotten me to the point where I feel comfortable enough to actually finish some of the 7-10 staves that are sitting around unfinished.  Congratulations on a well deserved award!

I really wanted to see this one make top, Gordon, and so pleased it did. Congratulations again.

Pics of the BOYs will appear on my TBD pages soon - probably this evening or tomorrow AM.
