2019 Bow Trade - Sign up closed
« on: February 22, 2019, 07:30:30 am »
The bow trade time has come.  If you are interested in participating, please be aware that the primary point of this trade is to build the BEST bow you have ever built for your recipient.  It is about the giving of your talents and sharing the build with the community.  It should hurt a little bit to send that bow in the mail.  If you do not share this philosophy, then please do not sign up.  If you do share this then, let's get building.  The rules for the trade are listed below. 
***********************************
 
Alright everyone, it is time to sign up for the 2019 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 15th. 
F.  Shipping deadline will be October 18, 2019. 
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

I'm in.  I have more time this year.

Right Handed, 50-55#  (55# would be preferred)
29" draw.

FWIW,  I have been a target shooter so far, but I am hoping to start hunting soon.

I hope that participation will be high this year. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's work.  Please post lots of pictures!

I had been debating on whether or not Id have or wanted to take the time for the trade this year. But why not, Im in. I cant skip a year.
Right hand, draw 27 with stiff handle, and 26 with bendy handle. Like 65# draw but am happy with anything from 40-80#.
So:right hand, 65# 26-27 draw.

Bump.  I hope we get good participation this year.  I see it not as getting a bow from someone, but being given an incentive to make the best bow i can for someone else.  I already have a couple of ideas. . .

I'm in. Enjoyed following along with all the builds last year! Also a good excuse to tidy up my shop a bit.

RH
27" draw
50lbs is nice but anything between 40-55 works.

If you haven't posted one before, show us your work,(see the first rule), but if you've made 10 good shooters, then you certainly qualify.
