Got two very nice Osage staves. My person might be getting a backed bow if I’m feeling froggy enough. Hopefully they’re ok with that

I missed last years, so I think I should do it this year. I was waiting because there isn’t a lot of participants. I guess holding out wasn’t helping that.

RH
26” - 28” draw length
40# to 400# draw weight.

I'm on the fence.  I have a couple bows that I have obligations for though that will have to come first. 
I'll make my decision by next week.  But man I have been really wanting to build a 400# bow...   :)

400# is just an option in case you come in a bit high on draw weight.

Great to see more joining in the fun! Might need a new scale for building a 400#er, maybe a new shoulder, elbow….too :)

Got a ring chased on a pretty nice piece of osage. May lay it out and rough out this weekend so I can keep in the house for a week or 2 just so I know its dry. My shop isn't heated and sometimes humidity is too high and dry staves gain some weight. Got several other ideas as well and im sure that'll change when things get rolling.

Think my cord for my phone is bad and cant upload photos to computer right now but will be looking into that this weekend.

Got the stave pulled out, center line marked and narrowed to 2”.
A vine maple stave I cut last year, and baked in my stave drier, Toyota Tacoma model. Right now it’s 64” right now, but we’ll see who I draw and decide the details from there.

Hey Folks,

Not sure what my son did, but I can get pictures onto the computer again:) Nothing special so far but figured i'd show 1 or2  direction I could go in.

Like I said before, got a good ring chased on an osage stave. If I use it i'll use the natural deflex through the handle and then match reflex to the tips. Looks like more in the pictures than it really is but it would give a nice side profile.If I Do that i'd have about 62"ntn, a little shorter than I usually do but things should be good. Also have a piece of locust in a few pics that I cut after I signed onto the swap. Thought it would be a good long term project during the swap, when I have down time from the main piece.  Always a risk for me to say that before I got the bark off but may make for a nice bendy.

Got some other ideas bouncing around my head as well.

Mike
