Terry... the main wood in the riser is called Moradillo (seems like most of the exotic hardwoods have more than one name so it could go by something else and it's probably in the Rosewood family).

The accents are Osage and Bacote with a piece of Coco Bolo thrown in on the belly side of the grip.

The limbs are action wood core with Red Cedar under the clear glass. Tip and handle overlays are osage.

Of course what isn't apparent in the pictures is that the bow can be shot right or left handed.

I like the bow enough that I'm gonna have to make myself one... seems like I'm always last on "the list".

Charlie's memory is starting to fail him  :-(
He forgot that he'd already put a shelf on the bow and ended up putting one on the other side too.

It's really sad......

Here's something else interesting about Charlie's bow....

When I got the bow, I saw that it had 3 little light rectangle hash marks on the upper limb, and I didn't think anything else of it but that it was a unique characteristic.

     


Yesterday when I called Charlie about posting the woods that he used, we continued on talking about the bow.  Charlie then brought up the unique characteristic stating..."Those 3 light marks on the upper limb....I don't know what that's about".  And I said "I know what its about....its about the 3 little pigs"       :)       ......

Pretty cool huh???  Maybe I should name the bow 'The Big Bad Wolf'.    :biglaugh:

Biggie,

You better be careful about what you say regarding Peanut. She may just decide to pee on ya when you are takin your afternoon siesta.  She has more smarts than most of the guys at work. Then again... that doesn't say much about where I work!

Heck I thought I was giving her credit! You and Marty act like I was being mean.   :rolleyes:

Only having to pull her back onto the bloodtrail once is a vast improvement. Ok, how about this;

GOOD THINGS ABOUT PEANUT;
1)She doesn't bark.......

Sorry, that's all I can think of.
