Osage Longbow Build Balt Trad Classic

Finally got the hang of seeing early wood and late wood and feeling the cruchiness with a draw knife.


Almost there, late into the night first night.  I have only 1ft left to go but gotta go home. Can't feel my hands, and hurt all over.


Finally, next day Friday down to the ring, and have to clean up around those pin knots clustered.
