Bows By James Rempp of Missoula, Montana
« on: December 17, 2013, 12:08:13 pm »
i met a very hysterical gentleman while i was at a shoot in Moses Lake, Washington. i was very impressed with his artistry of the craft. though he is not a member of PA i thought i would post a few of his bows :) he makes some off the most beautiful short plains bows and character yew bows. woods ranging from vinemaple to osage.

the first is a sinew backed horn bellied osage bow


::)





when i first met james he handed me this yew bow and asked my to count the rings.... my eyes do not magnify to that measure.

Jims a great guy.He was one of the great secrets of self bowyery for quite a while,till Paul Brunner was taught by him and started spreadin the word bout Jim.

Hes originally a Nevada boy,so of course hes gotta be Great.LOL

According to Paul Brunner, he taught Jim and the student quickly surpassed the teacher. I still have my copy of TB featuring "The birth of a Bowyer".
 Jim sure has  n eye for artistic flair although I don't care for excessively wrapped bows. Makes me wonder if anything is hiding under wraps in the working section. ;)
