bow for my little bro
« on: July 19, 2019, 09:35:34 am »
my little brother is seven. i tried to give him my old wheels bow that was fifteen pounds (he couldnt draw it) untill i could make him a bow. that day has come. he will be drawing it to 5# at 20". its a pyramid style bow made out of a horribly tillered red oak board bow. i made him an arrow out of the smallest in diameter piece of rivercane but that was still too much and was flying everywhere so i made a shelf that had to go a little past the center. well its done and i hope hes happy with is. *(sorry no full draw yet)

Nice. Those wee bows can be challenging.

Way to go Russell. I'm sure your brother will like it.
