My daughter outgrew the last bow I made for her so it was time for a new one. Its Osage, 60" long and 30 lbs @ 24". She doesn't draw it 24" yet but I made it with some room for her to grow. Her school colors are orange and blue so I tried to work that into it as much as possible. She helped out a little with it along the way. I let her pick out everything on it. She wanted a black rat snake skin and the leather she picked out for the handle was paper thin. I rolled all of the edges just so I could stitch it. I built up a leather shelf but after a few shots we decided that wasn't going to work. I ripped it off and put a floppy rest on it. It made a big improvement in her shooting. The arrows are cane/bamboo with kool-aid dyed feathers. The quiver is a bear leg. She picked that out as well. She likes to shoot bows quite a bit. We are planning on going to the Cloverdale shoot in a couple of weeks.
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left
