Well it shoots . Came out about 50@ 28" and 68" long not sure what kind of finish is going on it . Thinking solid black. The wood is hickory with a denim backing. Not sure I like it, but it shoots and still in one piece. Heres some pictures.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

You are getting to be quite the bow craftsman. I can't wait to hear how it shoots. :yahoo:

TD the bow looks great. I have been toying with the idea of making a bow myself. I was at the achery club yesterday and one of the members had just made a sinew backed osage longbow. I was quite impressed as the guy put arrow after arrow into the bullseye at 50 yards with it. Seeing your bow just put me over the edge. :lol: :smiley_kewlpics:
