Linc,

That bow is awesome. I'm infatuated with that design and hope to make one soon enough.

What kind of wood did you use?

Thanks guys.The bow was made from PA osage.Main bow is a belly split that had it's issues with windchecks. The back bow was a sliver (toothpick is more like it).

Sparky,I glued on some silk backings yesterday.Today I'll be glueing on some horn tip overlays on the main bow and paint the silk,then put a polyureathane finish.

I changed my mind about the horn tip overlays and the painting.Looks pretty cool the way it is.I'll have to let it get good and dry before putting a finish on it.

Ray,That's fire starting fuel.I have a few more boxes of gold dust around somewhere.

Thank you Killie.  :bigsmyl:  I don't search for the perfect stave,I just do the best I can with what I have.I've begged,borrowed and traded for the osage that I have and I'm not going to waste any if I can help it.Funny,some people say I have no imagination.   "[tunglaff]"  They've never seen some of the concoctions that I've come up with.
