a lesson in patience
« on: September 13, 2017, 08:16:37 pm »
this bow had a long, long journey to become a bow. lets just say i have been working on it off and on for 2 years :P, boo, black walnut and maple trilam,
 osage powerlam and mahogany handle. 68" ttt and about 45#@29 and shoots super smooth.bison tips with bobcat silencers on a d97 string 10 strand.
 i stained the boo with dark walnut which is not very dark, then i applied several coats of ebony at the nodes for the fade. hope ya like it

  That is a beautiful bow! I bet it is silky smooth as well as fast to shoot.

Beautifully exicuted bubby! I totally love it! It's my favorite profile and is very well made.  True artistry at its finest.
Definitely a BOY candidate!
Well done Sir!

I like it. One of my favorite profiles. I love how they shoot. If I were to offer any helpful criticism, I'd say the bottom limb looks to be flexing less than the top..... unless you are canting it in the full draw picture... if so, I respectfully withdraw my assessment.... canting often skews things.

What's not to like about that! The tiller and profiles leave nothing to be desired.

I can just feel my hand slipping around that thing. Your patience was rewarded with an exceptional bow! Nice work Bub!
