Lil' Osage
« on: August 20, 2008, 10:59:00 AM »
Well I finally finished another Osage. I cut this tree in May '08 and when I split it I had this little stave that i thought was to small to do anything with. After looking at it for about a week I decided to quick dry it and try to make a bow from it since I'd be waiting on the others to dry anyway. Turns out this little stave really wanted to be a bow. This thing really flings an arra. Nothin' fancy just plain and simple. It has taken no set and I've put 200+ arras thru it so far.

Cool little bow, John. It doesn't take much osage to make a good bow.     Pat
