Grandson's bow finished
« on: April 05, 2007, 11:39:44 pm »
Well I'm happy with how it turned out. Not really a primitive type bow but it's built with a lot of info I found here. Thanks All.
Plan on copying Pat O'Sullivan's reverse riser bow for the next one. Congratulations Pat. Imitation is the highest form of honor.

Thanks OldBow. This actually is a laminated bow. Used 2 tapered lams of hickory with birdseye maple wedges. Heat treated the belly to remove set caused by a water based glue. The riser is bocote with maple, purpleheart, and maple accents, 12" end to end. Limb tips are  cocobolo. The bow is 54" ntn 19# at 24".

Nice bow.  Fits right in with the laminated bows here.
