Thanks for the compliments guys! Somehow these weird staves have an attraction that I can't resist. And the feeling when you shoot them for the first time is way better ;D

Very well done Leon. I can't access the full draw pic though. I tried copying and pasting the url with no luck.

Oh well, I'm sure it looks as good as the rest of the pics.  ;)

When I read the title I was half expecting to see something like this...  ;D

 ;D ;D ;D I think making a pyramid like this is harder than making a bow!

I wonder if that's how the Egyptians did it.

Nice bow Leonwood. Well done a usual sir. I can see your full draw picture now. It is satisfying to get these corner dwellers turned into bows and especially so when they exceed our expectations.

Your bows are allways a pleasure to look at .as usual i really like the wrap you seem too come up with something different al the time.

Really nice save from the scrap pile!
Yep, sometimes as much as I intend to destroy a piece of wood it still causes me to try to make a bow from it.
Of course I might destroy it then anyways.
Without OCD, none of this would be possible!!

Maybe for you!  Very nice work from a challenging piece that many wouldn't attempt.  Inspiring work for sure.

Ah, now that's a satisfying FD pic. Kinda like taking a bite of a crisp, cold, juicy, delicious, ________.  :)

Thanks guys! I have a set of apple billets which are a relatively good compared to this bow so I guess I will try a bit of rd with that one, glueing some deflex in the handle and recurving the tips a bit ;D

love it, and your aunt would be very proud of you
I also like to grab the wonky ones, giving me lessons, and I also like the look
reusing old stuff is a good habit
cheers B2W

Really nice job. That is one pretty bow. I would never have thought about apple. Just goes to show you what can be done in the hands of a skilled craftsman.
