She was a bow Gus. She just didn't like the way I treated her.  ::)

You still get major credit for attempting it. I've seen pictures of these kind of bows so I know it can be done - I've just been too timid to try this design.

Sorry to see that, Pat. I really appreciate you guys posting the failures, though. It makes the novices like me not feel quite so bad about ours. Oh....and we really like looking at the successes as well, for sure.

Pat...been off doodling and came back to this tread to find that the little paddle bow didn't make it.  I sure do appreciate your teaching through this bow though!  Guess I will have to just "man up" and go pull on that iron wood stave...

Dang Pat, that's too bad, especially after the work of putting on sinew.   Good luck with the next one.

If you take your broken bows and throw them on the fire or the brush pile you loose. If you study that break and find out why and how you come out a winner.  8) I prefer the latter.
  George, you are absolutely right. I enjoyed the process of building this bow very much. Learned a lot too! The process that got me here today has been a thrill also.
Lesken, that is what PA is all about...Passing on the Tradition of Classical Archery!  8)   We all break bows if we are building them. Why not show the failures. If we can learn from them they are not failures.
