I haven't been on here in a while and the first thing I see is Hera making another awesome bow.

Very cool!

Thanks for including us.

I still have not used that saw Hera. Been to busy with hunting season and the kids.

Wow. Beautiful work Hera. I have been deluding myself into thinking I can't get started on building a bow until I get all the fancy power tools. It would be neat if you arranged all the tools you used to build this bow and took a picture to post here. Such an inspiration.

You got me !  :(    :p  
I always do the bad finish.
Not much finish coat I can find here in Taiwan like true oil or epoxy,I used to finished my works by super glue or clear acrylic,but I bought polyurethane last month,I will use it.

In fact,it's not difficult to do.
After rough shapping on riser by power sander,I use several files to shapping the riser,and check it not go too far, go slow on edges,and so as to the sand paper work.

I have been totally amazed following along on this but that last picture of the tools you used really brings it all home!  You have certainly taken craftsmanship to the highest level and created not just a bow, but a work of art  :clapper:    :clapper:  
Thank you for sharing your skills with us.  I have learned much from your posts and the time you took to add detail of each step.  It is very much appreciated Hera!

I´d be hapy to see you building a bamboo bow.

Whatever you´ll do next, I´ll watch with great interest.

Respect,

You have a cool avatar.

I order some bamboo column today,hope big enough to build a laminate recurve selfbow, and hope no modern meterial in it except glue.
