Come on guys, there's got to be another Euro/UK bow builder out there - I've got a cracking hawthorn sapling gonna make a beautiful long bow - maybe swap at the Chepstow meet in September?

I was going to ask that every one post if they shot split or three under. I shoot three under for the most part but I can shoot split as well.

 Well it looks like you are all going to make this way too easy for me. So far it looks like I will have no trouble keeping track of everything with so few people involved in the trade.

I like a challenge so a few more people would be good.  Are the rules scare g people away?  I promise I am pretty easy to get along w ith!   (=)

I'm in! Was on the fence for awhile and it all depended if I could get the one I have been working on tillered in 1 piece before the dead line. just finished sweating out the last 2" tonight. So good to go on a new build :)
RH 45-55 lbs at 28" I shoot 3 under

Hope no one minds black locust, seems to be what works for me. Or at least that's the plan for now.

Will send PM Swampman
Thanks, Mike

Black locust was the wood of choice for the people around here, been wanting to get my hands on some of it.

JW, they need to redo a spillway for a dam at work and in doing so need to remove some trees, a few are large black locust that I have had my eye on. I tried before but was not given permission to cut them. Now that they need to come down I may be able to get um. I just found this out last week so I need to goto the source and not just hear say. If/When I do I'll let you know. Mike
