I left that billet bow leaning on bandsaw!

Greg still hard at it, we are reworking the shop a bit, all the sanders in one place and the vices will be added when we get the other tables set up, hopefully this week. :) Also found some old 20 year old billets we plan on splicing, no telling how long they have been hidden up some of my junk. :-[ :-\ :-\

I gave GregB a cow horn he was going to make a powder horn out of with some scrimshawing on it , after clean up he decided it was to pretty to do that and gave it back to me, I gave him another. Woody showed up with his new Christmas tool, I Showed him a draw knife Micky Lotts gifted me at the 14th Classic, both made by the same company in England, very high quality tools, I hung mine up and have never used it, that was 10 years ago and still razor sharp, guess I should do some work with it but it is just so nice, I ant use to that nice of a tool. :) We found another set of short billets, Shawn spliced them and we are planning on a kids bow from them, very nice wood for sure. :)

Ya Shawn that was Jon, he came and stayed a couple of days after Christmas with his brother Danny, ya good to see him out,he don't get out as much as he use to. ???  I found the billets you spliced by the band saw, they looked good, guess it's time for a kids bow or maybe a blank for some kid to make a bow, ya that sounds like a better idea. :)

Great weekend, pretty cold but once out in it for a day or 2 you get use to it, ;) Got the wall all finished up by the fire pit, I will say it turned out nice, nice to look at and keeps the wind off the fire pit and weather off my equipment , so all good. Still have a few things to hang but over all it's done. Also got a lot of clean up done around the shop, I found stuff I forgot I had and now can fine them , at least for now. ;) :) Got some work done on the Hickory staves and also almost have my 2 hides ready to smoke. Had lot of buddies come by also, it was a very good weekend for sure. Here are a few pictures. The wall and my work bench and stove area all redone, it works a lot better , don't know why I haven't done this earlier. :)

New bench for debarking staves, this should work nice, got a spots for 2 staves at a time plus another vice for bow work, Brats for lunch and some hide work, they are looking very good but not quite dry yet, it was cloudy and damp, hard to dry a hide in them conditions . ???

Had some heavy bark come off a persimmon Burl, so Shawn and I made a bowl from it, pretty cool, waste not want not. ;) :) Also started consolidating my pine pitch and wax, had it scattered every where in bags and cans, now I have it all clean and ready to use when needed. :)The cleaned up new outside stove area worked out great for that. :)

Will showed up and spent most of the day, he sang me a new song he had just written the night before, it was great, that boy has talent. Then we went out on the practice rang for some shooting, Dan has the range set up very nice, 4 elk and lots of big critters on it. 25 targets in all and set up really nice for hunting shots. :) about a mile around it so get some good exercise to boot. ;) :) I think Shawn won but we all hung in pretty good. :)
