So how does this work?   When do you assign who you are building for? and get the specs needed?

Working in some bows anyway tonight so between heat bending tips and super glue drying I cleaned up what’ll be a fun Osage stave so it’ll be ready to go once I have name and specs. It’s quite gnarly in its twisting and propeller. But I made a bow last spring from its sister stave and it turned out quite a good shooter. It’s been dead standing long enough that this is the freshly cut color.

Nice!

Going to be up front, I may have to work into Monday on the matches.  The distribution is going to take a while with all the new-to-me folks we have this year.

Kirkll, I will PM everyone who they are building for, their requested specs, and their mailing address

Ripped some lam material for tapers I got a fun plan for wood choice in this swap bow, more about that in next week's post.

This would be a good time to figure out that picture size :dunno: imgur photos 800x600

Max you don't need imgur. The blue + bottom left below reply box click on it select your pic and auto resize when you post. Then if you got more than one there is more attachments.

Ok, so that was a large picture but it loaded.  Did it just re size automatically 😳??
