Alright here is the link to the on time trade bow drawing! Video quality is a little iffy but thatís what I get for having an 8 year old film and a 5 year old making a cameo for the drawing! If you are the lucky winner please PM me your info and Iíll get it shipped out. Thereís still a few people building, and a couple that are finished and needing to ship. But either way keep up the great work. This trade has been a blast and Iím hoping everyone has had as much fun as I have.

Thanks for organising everything, its been a lot of fun.

 I've done two deep heat treats where Simk suggested, trying to resist drawing it until tomorrow then we'll see if its made much difference. Got the packaging and paperwork sorted so hopefully it shouldn't be long now.

Great job on the trade Kidder. Congratulations Stickhead and thanks to Arvin for the generous donation.

Wow!  I hit the jackpot again!  Thanks Selfbowman, Kidder, cameraman, hat-reacher, and everyone else involved!  That looks like one heck of a bow!

I got me an Arvin bow!!  Arvin's generously donated "On Time Bow" arrived this weekend, and what a beauty she is!  (Not that I'm deserving of it, but I'm grateful for the luck of the draw.)  Braced, unbraced and full draw profiles are spot on, and it shoots like a dream.  This was clearly a premium stave of Osage, carved by a master craftsman.  Thanks Arvin and Brendan!

This'll be a great design example for me to go by in the future, as will the superb trade bow I got from Dan (Santanasaur).

I just received my trade bow from Tradcraftsman today! Itís a very nicely done hickory bendy handle bow. He did a really nice job and I can tell he poured his heart and soul into it. Havenít gotten to shoot it yet but the tiller seems spot on. Frankly itís a bow design Iíd probably never make as it is very different than what Iím currently building so itís even more exciting! Thanks Trad!

Glad it got there safe.  I figured $20 in PVC was better protection than the same in USPS insurance.  Plus, it makes a reusable bow case for the end user. ;D

P.S.
Did the end cap come off alright? I supper glued one end on and jammed the other pretty hard.

Thanks Trad. I must have got lucky on which end cap I picked cause it popped right off!
