Haha.  Thanks Arvin.  I already submitted a different bow.  Iíll submit this one next month.  Your right itís about pushing the limits of our capabilities and testing the limits of the materials.  This bow was made with mostly ďnaturalĒ materials and bows like this can throw us for a loop sometimes and tell us what it wants to be or not be.  We just need to be willing to listen.  Sometimes I can be a little hard of hearing and my stubbornness takes over.  ;)

Well I know I said I was done this bow but just couldnít send it out without a leather wrap.  Had a nice piece a black leather the worked out nice.  Suits it well I think and looks more complete now.  Sending it out tomorrow

so...what's the "rest of the story" on this bow?  Arvin?  I applaud you Dave because you never gave up.   :OK
Seems like common sense isn't very common any more...
