I got my wood at the Tn. Classic
« on: May 03, 2021, 11:11:49 AM »
I picked up 6 Osage Staves
One, 1" thick x 5-1/2" wide x 9' 3" long Blonde Ipe Board I cut into three 37" Blanks, Not vertical grain but James Parker said it was just as good so I got it cheep.
Some burl pieces Jim Hammer gave to me
One pair of Sturgeon fish skins for the Snakey Stave in the middle
6 T Shirts







I would rather fail at something above my means, than to succeed at something  beneath my means

And I made two 60" Osage bows about 1-1/8" wide 40/45#ish.
Still need to be sanded and spray finished, Finished Pictures later

Osage staves are getting high, so I got them before they get higher.
I have about 10 or so now.

Nice haul, Mark. Who did you get the osage from? Clint?
Make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes!

The price is getting to high, I have 10/11 staves (inventory) now for 5/6 years.

I forgot, James gave me 2 pieces of Buffalo horn for tip overlays and riser overlays.
one edge is 1/2" thick :thumbsup:
