Well Tom, he DID say "if weather holds" so maybe she doesn't have her makeup on yet????

By the way, no problem on the pics from here either.

I've come to believe that the keys to shooting well for me are good form, trusting the bow to do all the work, and having the confidence in the bow and myself to remain motionless and relaxed at release until the arrow hits the mark.

Wanting to "shoot" the finish today but the weather looks to have other plans for me. Guess I'll "shoot" my new Traditionalist for fun. CK

I'm getting flashbacks to when my son was born. He made us wait too.

Ooooppps! I broke it!  :scared:   We better start another bow now so it's ready by the deadline.  :readit:  

When it's ready for finish, just send it to me.  :bigsmyl:

I think Wingnut put an eletronic tracer in the riser for this type of issue.  I'd sure hate to be Curtis when the long range stun beam hits him.   :smileystooges:

That's okay... there's some spare yew, we were expecting something like this!

But now Curtis has to replicate the entire thing, all by his lonesome.

(let's see how long it takes for THAT to make him 'fess up!)   :readit:      :bigsmyl:

Shhhhhewww! At least that bought me enough time to shoot the last coats. Going to let her sit till tomorrow. No peeking!  :readit:  

I have to say that the reason I wanted to finish this bow is because I go to extreem in final sanding. I don't like the tiniest scratch left in the bow before I lay on finish. It always shows up later. I have to say I was quite impressed with the way the bow arrived. All the guys before me quite obviously put in their best work. It was difficult to actually find spots to touch up. I raise my glass to you guys!  :thumbsup:  After the final coat went on I was convinced that this was the cleanest finish I'd ever done. Im quite excited about buffing her out mirror smooth. More tomorrow! CK

Looking forward to seeing it.   Bet the snakewood looks great with a finish

Has anyone had the bow strung since the overlays were put on the back of the handle?

I just strung it about 15 minutes ago. It's sitting here beside me looking beautiful with her new finish. Im not sure pics will really show much in the finish but it's nice, smooth, no glue lines anywhere, no dust devils.... Nice.

I went through serious mental fatigue deciding if I would string her or not. I've drawn her about 20" and set her down. I couldn't show back up on T-gang if I broke it! Once the string settles in I'll unstring it and rub some more. I'd like to see someone design a special arrow pass. I don't have any good material. Nothing I'd want to put on this bow. CK
