Chaseing a ring on Osage can be fun @#%*
« on: November 24, 2004, 06:24:00 PM »
I got a little tired of makeing the same old, same old bows. But this may be a little more of a challenge. I followed the grain the best I could, and still violated a few rings, but a little rawhide and lower wieght it should survive. What do ya'll think, wanna takes bets on when she blows?   :eek:      :scared:      :D  

Lower limb
   
upper limb maybe

Are you going to try and put a string on it, or paint eyeballs? hehehe!

Nice, Dano. Are those violations upper third of the limb up top?

Looks long enough, Dano, or is that just the camera work?   If you got doubts, just rawhide it and I'll bet she's a shooter!

Well Calvin, I like Mark's advice, I'm going to put some rawhide on the back and go for it. It's a stave I cut last winter so I'm only out a little sweat.   :D  

Yep it's 64", that gives me 2-4 inches of goof space.

no, no...I think it will blow up if he rawhides it.

(I dont actually, but think it makes for more entertainment if someone bets against you)  "[tunglaff]"

I can always depend on you Calvin for the entertainment value.

Thanks Don, but I can break one once and a while   :rolleyes:

It should do just fine Dano, just put a good piece of rawhide on it.  One of these days (as soon as I as I can get a piece of snakey Osage) I will try one.  I love those snakey ones, they look GREAT!

C'mon Dano......little heat gunning and she'll be straight as a string ;-)

That looks like about 2/3 rds of the staves I've got stacked in the corner of my shop.....that's why they're stacked ;-)

Seriously though, the snakey 'sage I finished a few weeks ago also had a couple of ring violations.  I put some goat rawhide on it and it turned out pretty darned good.  Just covered the rawhide with a pair of diamond backs and nobody will ever know I couldn't follow the rings.....well, nobody except the whole darn trad-gang community!
