2018 Bow Trade-Completed
« on: March 08, 2018, 08:43:43 am »
Alright everyone, it is time to sign up for the 2018 Bow Trade.  Please read this entire post before signing up so you know what you are getting into.  Here is how to sign up:

1.  Send me a PM with the following information:
     Full Name
     Full Address
     Email Address
     Telephone number
     Which Country(ies) you will ship to

2.  Reply to this post with, I'm in and include bow specs preferred
     Example:  LH or RH
     Draw Weight 45-55 pounds
     Draw length 27 to 29 inches

Here are the rules:
A.  In order to sign up, you must have posted at least one successful bow on this site.  Please don't be offended if I ask for verification.
B.  All participants in this trade need to participate in the thread and post pictures of their progress,  Start out by posting a picture of the stave, staves, board, billets, etc. that you plan to use for the build.  If a participant has gone 30 days without posting progress, then I will take that as a withdrawal from the trade and the bow being built for them will be passed to someone else. 
C.  No bows should be shipped to someone that is not making progress on their bow.  If you are done with your bow and ready to ship, please be in touch with me to help decide if you should ship or not. 
D.  Any participant that chooses can also build a second bow to be used as a reserve.  The reserve bows will be used to ensure that ALL participating members get a bow by the shipping deadline.  Please let me know if you plan to build a reserve bow so if it is needed I know who to contact. 
E.  Deadline for signing up will be the end of the day, March 21st
F.  Shipping deadline will be October 15, 2018
G.  Have fun.

I will not be participating in the trade but I will be building a reserve bow.  I will update if there are any more rules needed. 

Let's make this a great trade.

Thank you.

Mike

This will be the stave I use. Split from the same log as my first hackberry bow, and that one has several thousand shots on it so the wood is sound anyway. I have several other staves, but this one is the best one I have.  The other piece of wood there is almost half finished, I would use it for the trade, but it has natural deflex out of one fade, and a crook that is towards the belly about a foot off of the opposite limb and I need to do some heat corrections and I dont want to do that to someone elses bow.

That hackberry looks like a great stave Morgan.

What kind of wood is that Hoosierf?

Id prefer to wait and see who I'm building for before I make a solid plan. That way I can stalk their older post and figure out what they like.
 As a general idea I can source some bamboo and ipe pretty easy. Just made a #50 pounder 62   n2n  that's a really nice shooter,  and fast to!.
