Sparky,

That was Supaparia.  It is another really good bow wood.  I have three bamboo backed bows right now that Connie Jason and I am shooting.

if bows could be compared to vehicles then a nice shooting r/d would be a family type car.....well these little bows are the ragtop jeeps.  The rides are comparable to shooting too  :)

thanks for the interest Ray.

I didn't build up the grip area with learther or cork but didn't wrap a longer than necessary area with leather.  the leather grip comes about 2" higher than the area pass.

i like a string keeper a lot so I can carry the bow in a bow case hooked to my quiver

this is the bow at full draw.  as ya can see I missed my tiller a bit.  bottom limb is on the left.  i intended it a bit sitffer and I wanted to leave the last four inches of both limbs stiff.  tiller could have used some more work but the little bow is shooting sweet now so I am reluctant to mess with it anyhmore.

this is the true and honest arrow speed with no attempt to fudge the results.  arrow was 10 grs per pound.

as the bow is tiller it is 49#@26"

it might have picked up the speed a bit if i had nailed the tiller

i left the tips 5/8" wide as to save the abo look.  had the tips been taken down to 1/2" we would have gotten a little sweeter shooter and I bet a few more fps.

it was a fun project and i like the results.  I'm gonna take it javie hunting in Jan and hog hunting in March.  I'm gonna beuld phase two after the hunts.  :)

thanks  Dano as ya can see the bottom limb needs some work.  top limb (imo) lookes pretty good.  

for bendy wide handle abot style the little bow is shooting nicley.  i like it.  we just gotta see haw it holds up.  

the Jaap processe was a great deal of fun and the glue line is prefect  :)

Man, if your happy with the glue line that speaks alot. I need to make a bendy handled bow to see what your talkin about. I bet that bow holds up real good.

Dang Rusty...skuff up dat glass and pile on some sinew. Ought to be a fire breather...  :knothead:

 Nice bow, I like that circular tiller and stiff tips. I think it makes a dead in da hand bow. Specially with a stiff riser.

LOL that is true Sparky or ya could just keep bendy the bow over your knee and driving in the wedges.  I was tring to build a gold standard here.  not too much reflex to see how the single glass backing would hold up.  pahase two will see if we can get one cranking  :)

I took the bow out to the cottontail rambles this morning.  All I manage was to throw a bit of dirt on a couple  that were in high gear.  Bow was right at home and a natural hunter  :)
