Could you do a French twist or is the thread too thick?

Not sure how to do a French twist but I'm going to make one for a recurve in flemish twist.   More to come.

Made a string out of linen.   Very quiet.


Nice, I have a similar one for a ELB.  Keeping it a bit damp when shooting makes it hold up better (of so I have read)

I hung my new bow rack this afternoon. It’s made from a nice piece of yew with cherry pegs that I turned.





It can hold up to 27 bows. Plenty of room to grow. 😁

From the top pic I was wondering how the bows stayed horizontal.  :o    :dunno:    :laughing:

Looking very good. I am curious about the recurve with the Bloodwood riser, is the finish holding up well?

Bue, the recurve that you built for me is still looking great. I took it turkey hunting last time I was out but they stayed out of range. I only managed to get one on the last day with a gun at max range. My friends who have been bowhunters all their lives liked it and how it shoots.

I got behinder today.  :knothead: Am doing a two piece. the first wrap did not com all the way apart. So I ground it all off and redone it. everything looking good I put it on the bench dowell to check the limbs for pulling straight and heard a little tick.  :o. The wrap opened up near the shelf. So I put it on the scale and left it for awhile then it really opened up. Ground the sleeve back off and the carbon layer seem mushy. But the glass was solid . Gonna lay it back and re wrap later and make a one piece out of it. Now need to layup another for two piece.
