Now I've got the side profile established.... tomorrow we cut in the facets and get this thing starting to bend.....

  http://mail4.cableaz.com/~tpetko/auctionbow7.htm  

Yep this is one special stave indeed..... Calvin The growth ring that is kinda reddish in color is probably wind check....wind check is a growth ring that was stressed out from the wind blowing the tree and causing it to seperate up the length of the ring....I've never had any problem with it..... Gonzo and Habanero both had wind checks and they are hard hitting durable bows.....This one will probably be all worked out of the working limbs with some remaining in the fades and handle.... Basically the nonbending portions of the bow....... My hats off to the guys that do these build alongs on a regular basis.... I spent more time taking pics and putting this up on the computer today than I did building the bow.....  :D  ....Terry

Terry figure 3 times longer to do a bow while doing a build along incl taking pics and posting to a website

I got to say though you take the best pics and the way you put them together is great!   :bigsmyl:

Thanks Steve and Bobby.....

Bow is looking good there Terry...could you take a pic from the end of the bow showing the facets? I think that would explain the process very well.

and I see you're wearing your Jawge tiller flage   :D

I've been a big fan of Jawges' tiller flage for years but I've kinda kept it in the closet....   :D    I'll see if I can get some better shots of the facets in the next series of pics...
Timo..... It always had good lines north and south..Just the little deflex I offset by clamping it to the form while it acclimated to Aridzona..... This stave is a beaut..... Terry

Looking great Terry, thanks for sharing. I particularly like the circle stencil you use for laying out the widths. I have a full length pattern for the majority of the bows I make but the circle stencil would come in handy for all the others. I commend your generosity to a good cause as well.

Great build along.  I like the tip of using a circle guage to mark your profile, I've always used either a rule or a compass, the genius of simplicity, gotta love it  :thumbsup:

Chris and Brian..Using the circle to do your layout dimensions is something you'll find in Dean Torges' book "Hunting the Osage Bow"..... If you haven't done so already I'd highly recommend that you pick a copy up.....everything I'm doing here is either directly from Deans book or a mutated variation of his process.....Like the Facet tillering.....   :)   ...Thanks for following along..

Great job Terry, I have been using a compass for layout  :knothead:  , but that stencil looks much easier. Thanks.  :thumbsup:

Awesome job Terry!  I'm gonna go capture all the pics of Jawge's tillerflage on all us bowyers someday and put them on a single page.  Nah, the anti's would get a hold of it and use it against us  :)
