Yup, always more fun that way....

Truely became a bow today, when it cast it's first arrow. Here's what went down today...

Here's Sam doing some tip shaping....

   

And here's me showing Sam how you really shape a tip...lol. Note the missing chunk o' purpleheart where the purple mets the orange. That dang stuff is so finicky, if the grain is wrong, which hard to tell, it chunks out near edges and such. We thought it through and came up with a quick and easy fix, I will come back to this later to show you what we came up with....

   

Sam sanding all the nicks and scratches out in preparation for the bow being really bent....

   

Alright, Sam desided he wanted to be the camera man a bit more. So, I have no explination for why I look like such a tool in this picture, just acting weird as we do. First brace, not bad huh.....

   

Again, no reason why, just a strange boy. The view from the back...

   

Checking the draw weight. Over all we got it back to 57# at 21"...

   

Tiller a bit more refined at the point of the this picture, and braced a bit more normal....

So once we got to 21" I desided he should shoot it for a while with some shorties. That bow shot awesome, especially for the short draw and crappy arrows. Nice flat arrow flight out to about 18 yards already!...

   

   

Meanwhile I shot my new recurve, which looks funky, but turned out really nice and really spits out an arrow. That was one dead hay bail. We shot for about and hour and then called it quits for the day....
