Thanks all for comments

just added Bit cow hide to arrow rest - just spray contact adhesive (Masking off area dont want glue) and always make sure Hair grain goes approx direction of arrow travel .
and in the middle of putting Danish Oil on - will take maybe 5-6 coast

Made Leather grip
1- cut strip of paperwork and tape around handle then wrapped all in tape - cut off straight line where want ends to meet .
2- cut around template to leather (5mm larger all around)
3. soak leather till soft
4. cling-wrap bow handle area where leather will touch
5. wrap leather around handle and wrap leather strips around to hold tight
6. dry overnight in warm place
7. remove all leather and grip - cut to exact size , mark and make holes for thread
8. return to bow and lace up .

Looks like a really old School type of bow.  I'm digging it. Really cool.   :thumbsup:
