It's been a while since I posted a bow build on here. I've slowed down a lot with making them. I'm down to 1 every year or so. This one had some history to it. A friend found a bunch of old osage bow staves and gave them to me. I made him a bow out of it. He asked me to make one for his son several times. I told him I would but it seemed like I never had the time to do it. Last February my friend was killed in a car wreck. It always bothered me that I didn't get the bow done. This spring I picked the best piece from the wood that he had gave me and started on this bow for his son. It came together pretty smoothly. I put diamondback rattler skins on it and big horn sheep tip overlays. The handle has an open knot hole that angles through it. The bow is 47 lbs @ 29". I handed the bow over to the new owner the other evening.
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left
Love it. You never cease to amaze me with your projects
Thanks. I'm crossing more projects off my to-do list since the quarantine shut down my second job.
I know how you feel. Was off 8 weeks, worked the last 2 and now I'm off again for 2 weeks. Redoing my decks, building a chicken coop, and brakes on the wifes car are all on the list. Hopefully I can get some walleye fishing in
