Warbow Dimensions
« on: January 16, 2013, 02:46:29 pm »
I'm in the process of making another warbow and took the dimensions from another one I made to use as a general guide so I though I might as well share the information as it may be helpful to some looking for some dimensions. The bow is laminated hickory, purpleheart core, and white oak belly. 74" ntn, 100#@32" and took about 1.5" of set after being glued up straight. It has an ovular cross section. The greater than sign (">") was used when the measurement was over the 1/16" line. Hopefully that makes sense.

Distance from center      Width           Thickness
0"                                  1 7/16"        1"
4"                                  1 7/16"        >15/16"
8"                                  1 3/8"          15/16"
12"                                1 5/16"        7/8"
16"                                >1 3/16"      13/16
20"                                >1 1/8"        3/4"
24"                                1"                >11/16"
28"                                7/8"             11/16"
32"                                3/4"             >5/8"
36"                                9/16"           >9/16"
38" (Tips)                       9/16"           >9/16"

The tri-lam is gorgeous Sparty. Very nice bow.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Thanks Guy! I'm glad you like this stuff! It'll be up soon. I did a little finer sanding and the wood has some AMAZING figure to it. Need to make sure the finish does it justice.
