Nice job on the bow!   :thumbsup:  

I don't have any pink leather, but I do have some bright red stuff that would work perfectly.  Not quite as girly as the pink, but closer than brown or black!
If you want some PM me your address and I'll send a piece out.

=)  What do you guys think I should name the bow.  Should it be something girly!? LOL the first thing that came to my mind was that the stave has a bunch of knots in it.... hence "knotty..."  and my wife is a red head... Jeremy offered to send me some red leather to make a handle on the bow... should I call the bow "knotty red head"  maybe "knotty red"   If you have a good name for the bow, LET ME KNOW! =)

"SweetHeart" because You Made it for Your SweetHeart! I know, Mushy, but with as Much Happiness there was on Her face after she shot it, ya gotta do her Justice for MANY things! You got to do it all of that IN THE HOUSE, and I am Sure she was slobbering just to get ahold of HER BOW!!
  Great Build-Along, and like I said, with a Smile like that, "SweetHeart" will do them BOTH Justice my Friend. YOU are a Very Lucky Man!
    Good Luck and Good Shooting for Years to Come to BOTH of You!!  :archer:

Yep, I like "Sweetheart" too, nice job on the bow, keep up the good work.

You don't want people to get the wrong idea about your lovely wife  ;)

I think "Sweetheart" it is.  I just read a couple of the last posts to my wife and she is grinning ear to ear.  Thank you guys for all the comments and help in building this bow.  I'll post after I get the handle sewed on and touch up the bow some. =)

I just want to thank Jeremy for sending that red leather for the bow grip that I finally had some time to put together.  I think it turned out alright for the first try and I must say it adds a great deal of character to the bow itself.

Being that I am a flyfisherman and tie my own flies, I had a ready supply of interesting feathers.  So I picked a few and added those onto the grip with some beads (the wife gladly donated those to the cause =) I'll add some pictures of the finished bow and I'll also add some pictures of the primitive bamboo arrows I put together the other day for myself.

Just wanted to thank you all once again for all of your help.  My wife and I went and shot together on Sunday.  WHAT A BLAST THAT WAS! =)
