June's Backed Bow of the Month
« on: July 08, 2007, 09:28:05 am »
Congratulations to J. D. Duff of Gearhart, Oregon.
 His Ocean Spray backed Yew Bow is
June's Backed Bow of the Month.

http://www.primitivearcher.com/smf/index.php/topic,2678.0.html

Here are some details about this neat bow:
With the talk about 'D' bows I got inspired to post one that I built a few months back.  I originally tillered this little Oceanspray stave to 50# @ 27" and it took almost 2" of set--not that I blame it--so I threw it aside for a couple months.  I ended up laminating on a Yew belly and tillering it out for a birthday present for my wife Joy.
52" [?] nock to nock. / 7/8" wide (no narrowed handle section). /  3/8" tips with horn and Abalone overlays.
Leather over cork grip. / 35# @ 25".


Voters were especially impressed about the perfect "C" Tiller on this one.
"Thats a cool little bow JD.  Interesting wood combo. I bet it does really zing them light little arrows!" - Ryano
"I like that one alot!  As far as I can see, tiller looks great as well." - Easternarcher
"I love to look at a perfect C tillered bow  !!!!      " - NorthShoreLB

Thank you so much you guys.  It honestly didn't cross my mind that this bow was a contender for BOM.  I guess I thought it was too simple or something.  I really apprectiate your comments about the tiller and everything.  You're good people to be around.   ;D

Congratulations, JD. Great looking bow (and wife  :) ) I'm sure she'll enjoy it. Great tiller, nice detail work, all-around mighty fine little bow.
