It was fun for me too Calvin, albeit I think I rushed myself on dis one a lil'. Yeah I might try one out of Osage...  :knothead:  
  Thanks Linc, yep it's a shooter. Came out at about 48# @ 29". Pretty fun bow to shoot. No hand shock.
  Thanks Mac, appreciate it...it was fun to do. I like the Elm wood as much as Hickory.
  Rusty, if a feller could get some weight and a good tiller out of this design, I believe it would be superior to a lot of designs.
    :bigsmyl:  ..Terry, he he he...David will have to take care of that. Yeah...I learned a bunch on dis one, especially that i can't tiller worthg a hoot....LOL   It was a lot of fun tho.
  Got some full draw pics up...not my best tiller, but it'll have to do.

Your way to hard on yourself Sparky, tiller looks pretty good to me. If she shoots good, no hand shock, and looks pretty, I'd say thats all that matters.

Thanks Dan, I'd like to try one out of Osage one day. I'd really like to see some tiller pics of a finished one so i'll know what one really is suppose to look like...LOL
  I chased the dang tiller back and fourth on this one more than any other. I finally had to stop and say fini...LOL.
  Thanks again Calvin..."Pop" is here now and say's hey!

Thanks Timo...appreciate it. Osage could definately make a shorter, thinner bow with better weight/cast. If I do another I think I will reduce the handle area to the "just bending" stage to maybe help the string angle a little. I had to get the wider/flat areas working first and lost some of this because I "set" the wood in those areas. I think Osage would have been able to withstand the early bending better.

Just my thoughts...Happy New Year Bud!

Calvin,

I've been thinking all night of starting another bow, only thing is I don't think it would be a good time to start with my wife and kids still up.  I'll wait till tomorrow, but will be checking for yours.  Good luck.

Just got off the phone with the c-man, and he is only on his third! So it's a go!

Also, he is useing a piece of mo. hedge, so chances are good for the outcome????

We will see!
