A 10" cast iron skillet can be an effective weapon if it is used for one.

Yup I know, good thing I can run faster than the wife:)

Tape removed from the limbs.  Finally a look at the beauty of the veneers.  My student is remaining very patient and taking his time.  Very proud of his accomplishments and willingness to learn.  Super excited to see the final results.  Getting close!!!!

My hats off to you and the students Ron, not sure in west central Il. your at but I'm recently retired from the Chicago Union Carpenters and have built several successful bows, would be happy to help out anyway I can. Would also give me a chance to scout out places to hunt those magnificent Whitetails.

This is great.  Some of my best times at school were in wood shop.

 Its unfortunate but alot of public schools don't offer it anymore, and its a great way for students to learn how and why to learn.

Woodshop was definetly my favorite class in high school. A few years ago some parents tried to take it away because it was potentially dangerous but they still offer it and I hope will continue to do so. I still keep in touch with my old shop teacher. Neat thread!

This is a great thread.  I can't wait to see the finished product.

I'm actually surprised you are allowed to build "a weapon" in shop class these days.

It's not a weapon unless it's used as one.   :thumbsup:

Another method I use to keep the back lams in place is I have a 1/8" hole drill exacting in the center of the handle area in my form. I drill a 1/8'" hole through the center of all my back lams, after they have been glued together and then back glass, then I drill a 1/8' inch hole through into the center of my riser about a 1/2" or 3/4". I buy small bamboo cooking skewers and make pins out of them then cut them long enough to fit into the hole in the form, the lams, glass and into the riser. I put the pin in the form first then put my film over the form before glue up and punch a hole through the film with the pin, be careful to make the hole in the film as tiny as possible, then glue your stack  and riser. Place your stack on the pin and clamp the riser into the form. the pin will hold the back glass, back lams and riser all together and keep them from slipping. I also use Kenny's spacer block on the belly side of the handle to keep the belly lams and glass in place. It helps keep everything in place, gives you peace of mind that the lams and glass will stay where you want them!! Don't ask me how I know!! I've learned a lot of helpful tips from the guys on this forum and have incorporated a lot of their suggestions into my own builds, it sure has made my life easier!!!

Finally back in school from our Christmas break and getting back to work in the shop.  Over our Christmas break, I received an awesome gift from a fellow Trad Gang member for my student.  J.Holden contacted me and asked if he could make a grunt tube to match my students bow as a gift for him.  I received it in the mail and just wanted to share my appreciation for his generous act and to show off the beautiful craftsmanship that has been put into this grunt tube.  Again, thank you so much J.Holden.  Truly appreciated.  My student was shocked and loves the grunt tube.
