Nothing but work and sleep the last couple of days.  Looking toward hunting some in the next two or three days though.  Daydreaming about super straight,  two inch wide piece of white oak that has been drying for six months in my shop.  49" inches long.  I am thinking about a short recurve, bendy handled,  sinew backed, turkey blind bow.....  Working for a living is fine, but it sure takes up a lot of your time...  ::)

I sawed up the remainder of a knuckle boom truck of hardwood logs yesterday and split half of it today. Will finish it all up tomorrow if the freezing rain ain't too bad tonight.
  Clint, your tiger striped bow came out great. That tissue paper is cool stuff once you figure it out.

I worked till 2, then Straightend some wood shafts for arrows that I'm making Chickenhawk in a trade, started turning one of them into an arrow, hand straightened some shoots for arrows, put a coat of finish on the handle of one of my knives and touched up the blade of another knife that had a small chip in it.

Thanks Pat.  And thanks for coming up with the idea.

Keenan, you would like that coffee table.  Its got a lot of heavy steel in it.  I bet it weighs over 150 lbs easy.
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

I got home from work went to bed around 11am. The mailman woke me up at 1pm banging on my door ( osage stave from Fred  ;D ). Went back to work. And my Bengals lost to top off my day.

A day late to post, but got some Yew dust all over Miss Heathers bench at the Wirwickis. Scraped the back, layed out the frontal profile and Matt did the bandsawing ( I am WAY to rusty to be sawing on the "other" Sister stave ). Matt and I had good company in the shop too - Wee Wicki "supervised" Us . Thanks again Keenan for the cool stave ! It was GREAT to be back making some dust and talking BOW with Matt. Bob

I enjoy Daves thread as well. Its ALMOST as good as Clints, "What's your day job?" thread!

I worked on overlays for a  static recurve project and repaired all my son's broken arrows, his quiver floweth over yet once again. Then rubbed a few coats on another bow Im sealing.

Clint, Keenan you guys go great work, excellent details as expected.

Were off to a good start! Great postings and love hearing about the happening of everyone.

Pat, A log truck load of hard wood logs,,,,,,,,you animal. Between you and Charlie there will be a new gold rush started :o

Roy batching it ! Now there is a whole picture in just a few words. 

Pearl those are some great looking curves. That's got the makings of a great bow

Bob. Glad you like the stave. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make from her.

Sadie Good luck with your job hunt. This area is leading the Nation in the micro brew world, and there are brewerys everywhere now. One of the leading locals just came out with a new batch called (Rocky Mountain Oster Stout)  They add Bull testicules to give the unique flavor.  No joke just watched it on TV add. The were lowering a big sack of nuts in the batch.  Try watching that while drinking your coffee

Saturday- deer hunted (with a gun) ..last day of the season here in Va. A couple of other guys hunting with us killed deer but I didn't even see one. But I reckon that's how it goes - see plenty of deer one season, not so many the next.
....the countdown to next season now starts!!

Been home alone for over a week as my supervisor is in Oregon visiting her world class new great grand daughter!  Have till Monday to clean up the house mess!  Been feeding my horses, tracking the Mt. Lion with no luck, ice fishing, and trying to design a leather tooled photo album for my Game Warden friend. Been checking the PA site several times a day!  Heard from Cowboy and really like that bow Keenan showed.  Planning on a big fishing trip to Northwest Territory this summer!  Working on learning how to use my new wolf call with hopes of scoring this winter!  A/Ho Joe
