2007 St Judes Auction Bow.... Stay tuned
« on: March 30, 2007, 08:30:00 AM »
Well guys ...... Times getting a bit close anyone up for doing another auction bow this year.... We've had some great ones in years past and the cause is more worthy than any other I can think of......we'll need a couple of bowyers to help out    :D  A string,bow sock, and maybe some arrows and a quiver would round out the package nicely....Any takers???.......

I have a brand new Razorback Leather Raptor Style quiver I planned on donating that I would be more than glad to give you for it Terry.

Great start......since we really are short on time we will probably need to do the readers digest condensed version of the bow build this year....... John...... Do you have a stave you could get down to floor tiller...... any volunteers for final tiller and finish work...... David consider your quiver part of the package......if you could get me a picture of it I can use it to post when the auction forum for this year is activated...... Terry

Ok Charles has offered to apply the snakeskins he's providing and take care of the finish and handle wrap..... Thank You sir!!..... Let's wrap up the volunteer list and get things moving.... Here's a pic of one of the previous Tradgang collaborations just to give the potential bidders a taste of what has been made in the past....   Mojoe II  Maybe Bobby and some of the other successful bidders could share a pic or two of their bows.......

Hey Terry,  I will offer an unstrung leather bowcase for the bow. It will be made in time for the auction or the time you require it. It will be in whitetail skin in a darker shade like smoke or cognac color without fringe.

Thanks!

What spine arrow are you looking for? I have some ash shafts that I can give you, they will need a little work to make straight. I think the spine is 60-65.
