I just finished up this osage bow with a couple of knot holes in it. The stave was cut in the early 90's. The bow is 66" long and 50# & 28". I could only get it back to 26" in the full draw picture (short arms). I wanted to flip the tips but a few pin knots on one end made me change my mind. There was the start of another knot hole in the arrow pass but it didn't go all the way through the bow. It is finished with 6 coats of low gloss tung oil. The bow is a gift for a guy who hooked me up with a bunch of old osage staves. He is a traditional shooter and plans to hunt with it this fall. I gave the bow to him today and he seemed pretty happy with it.
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left
