Nice job Osagetree!

Those wood borer holes can be a pain to work around. My ABC bow, (that I hope is surviving the gauntlet as we speak), was a stave with multiple bore holes in it. I was able to work all but one out of the bow, I couldn't remove it without changing the profile I was after. So I mixed a little glue and osage dust together and filled in the hole and wrapped a small patch over the top of it to hopefully keep any splinters from rising around the edge of the hole. It is best if you can work them all out but don't give up if you can't. Where there is a will,there is a way if you stop and think about it long enough!

Again, great job on what started out to be a questionable piece of wood    :thumbsup:
"Good Luck" & "Shoot Straight!"

You don't know how good it makes you feel when others benefit from something you've come up with and are nice enough to point it out publicly  :bigsmyl:  

Thanks Ken and Joe   :notworthy:
