I would love to finish one of the bows. It is the only thing I am any good at, I promise it would be special.

Ok, here's what we have so far.

Mike/Tim - Yew board
Tonkin Bamboo Back
Timo - carp skins
CK - snakewood overlay or underlay
Tom - horn tips
Dave Bulla - Leather L/R arrow rest

The board will be heading my way later in the week so I can get it cut, spliced, tapered and ready for glue up.

Anyone have a hankerin to do some tillerin?

What an awesome undertaking.  This underqualified wood hack will be watching anxiously.

Both bows will need cool socks and a string keeper. I can incorporate a string keeper hole in the BBY horn tip easy enough but a cool leather one for the selfbow would be nice. Matching armguards anyone? Lance? New Guy?

Ok, this is coming around.  Man Terry is snatching team members left and right.  

Team BBY so far:

Mike/Tim - Yew board
CK - snakewood overlay or underlay
Wingnut- Tonkin Bamboo Back and glue up
JD - tiller
Tom - horn tips with string keeper
Timo - carp skins
Dave Bulla - Leather L/R arrow rest
CK - finish work


Did I forget anyone?

The board will be heading my way later in the week so I can get it cut, spliced, tapered and ready for glue up.
As soon as I get the stuff I will establish a timeline to get this stuff done in time.

When is the auction?

Going to need some arrows, bow sock, etc.

SLR,

We are going to bring the bow in at 50 plus or minus a couple.  So 50-55 should be perfect.

Thanks,

Mike

um, Mike? Glad to see that level of confidence! I'm doubly glad it's you and not me - the word, "try," would have been in there if it were me!   :bigsmyl:  

I have no doubt that it will.

God Bless.

Mike, glad to help if you need any.  Could add some handle and tip underlays….or maybe a horn belly if you want one?

Mike, I will make a bow sock for this bow as well if you need, I was planning on a fast flight string for the selfbow, do you need a string for this bow?

I can tell right now this is going to be another of those bows that are to "rich" for my budget - but, bless you all, don't I love the idea of it! It's gotta be a winner.

John,

A horn belly would sure push the price up at the auction.  When do you want the bow in the process and at what weight?  I'll get it glued and such send it to him to get the tiller and weight ready for you to add the horn.  How's that sound?

Dano,

A sock and string would be great.

Mike

John Scifres has agreed to chronicle both builds on his site. If you have the ability to send him pics and text of your work, please do so as you go.
