Yeah the weight is fine. I like 45-50, it gets it done and is easy on the shoulder. I put low specs so I’d have a lower poundage bow in case the wife or daughter wanted to try 3D this summer. Guess I’ll just have to build another. What material did you build the string with? The wife loves the colors and how well they match the bow.

Getting up at 6 tomorrow to beat the rain and spray my swap bow. Hope to ship Thursday. Gonna be sad to see it go, I just hope my victim is happy.

Whats our deadline? :bigsmyl:
I'm going to be pushing it to the end. Glad to see I'm not the only one. You would think it's tax time!
Did not get to spray yesterday, been cold, raining and humid here. Green house didn't get above 66 yesterday. Wife is home today, no way I'm spraying, even if it stops showering. Tomorrow's my day, partly sunny in the afternoon :thumbsup:. Should be able to ship on thurs or fri.

So much anticipation and anxiety wondering who had my name thru all this but now I’m anxious for everyone else. Ben that turned out good.

I made the mistake of hanging my bow in front of my target so I can’t even shoot until it’s finished now. Needs one more coat before the 320 grit rub down then final coat of semi goes on with a matte mist overtop. Really liking the richness that came out of the bubinga and maple. Final pics before she gets shipped out should be up here tonight.

I should be shipping on time, but it will be close. I’m shipping my B bow. It shoots nice and I have several coats of tru oil on it. I’m going to make a leather grip for it tonight.
The A bow is still giving me a hard time getting it to an even tiller and now one limb went off to one side. 🤬

Looks like I'll be in good company heading to the post office this week. Got the first coat on. Working on my daughter's bow at the same time (slightly lower poundage...) First time using Tbird, I think I might really like it, laid down nice at least.

For the guy Roy doesn't like:
