« on: July 04, 2008, 07:27:33 pm »
Here are a few teaser pictures. Its not finished yet so the story and rest of the pictures will have to wait. 
Boo backed Ipe
52" NTN
50#@26"
1" wide at the grip
Just the right size for crawling around in the pig thickets of Florida.  ;)

  Yep that's a shorty for sure. I like what you did with the tips. And we don't have thickets down here, we have palmetto and briar patches. ;)

Mike, there is plenty of string there without one strand.  ;D Its just a tillering string.
Thanks, Dano
Dana, that would be 32" I just don't see that happening.  ;)
Phil, I'm not that brave.
Eddie, I thought about calling it a palmetto bow but you would get the wrong idea of what it was made from. Ill get you some better pictures of the recurves/tips when the finish is dry. That is a story by itself.
Thanks again for all the kind comments.  Justin

  I'd like to see those pictures Justin. I think I can see what you did but it's hard to tell from those pictures.

Very impressive! Boo and ipe, who would have thunk!   How well can you shoot it? when I went to shorter bows(60" is short for me) it took a while to get used to it and be able to shoot accurately.
   I am working on a 60" osage static now. Got her bending nicely.        Pat

thats cool brother,

even though i've only made three bows so far(that have made it past tillering).
i think ipe is aweome wood.hard as heck to scrape but well worth it.
now dont get me wrong, i like osage also.however ipe is unbelivible wood,like osage.
i am currently working on a boo/ipe combo flatbow style( i guess ???) and cant wait to shoot it,even though it is for a friend,but i get to shoot it before he does ;D

thats an incredible bow ya got there brother.
                       
                                                                     peace,
