Very cool Simon, what an incredible bow. I really like the horn spliced into the tips.

I never believe a cat does fall off a chair!
(in fact, you're one of my favorite bowyers; just look at the link listing on my site)
This one goes up there in my top favorite bows I've seen from you Simon! Very very cool!!

Wow you really did give that one a second life! Looks really nice with the snaky shape and I love the white you used to lighten up the ray skin. Now I really feel the need to have a go at a takedown :laugh:

Let me add something about the td sleeve, maybe someone is interested in:

This are homemade sleeves from a pipe with 42mm diam.. I had no matching pipe handy for an inner tube, so I used the same pipe, cut out a strip of about 4mm lengthwise and bent it again to a circle. Both parts were bent then the vice. In this case I cut the inner tube in an 45 angle, of course the wood in the outer sleeve is also cut in that angle. This little trick works great!

For glueing in epoxi is best, because of gap filling.

Simon I do believe you could make a bow out of anything. If you lived in the states I would mail you some old hand split tobacco sticks and I bet they would become some of the nicest bows we've ever seen. Great job!

outstanding!  I think I like everything about it...and I am picky.  Thanks for sharing.  I also thank you for the sleeve trick, as I was going to ask how you made it.
