Just finished a week full of making bows and arrows and friends.
Thanks Paul for coming to hang out here with us for a week. We had a blast.
Paul spent built a beautiful 53lb. recurved flatbow, with bison horn tip overlays and an ingenious arrow shelf & strike plate.
He also built a dozen bamboo shaft arrows matched to his bow. We got to shoot a bunch in a tucked in little alley beside the house - through the chronograph his bow was shooting 148 feet per second.
We offered to take it to the Filberg Festival and sell it for him this weekend, but he was definitely not interested in the offer.
Happy shooting Paul. Look forward to our paths crossing again.
Right now the take down is available. Three others are spoken for and we're just awaiting deposits. And then there's two that we're doing in collaboration with Jeremy Humpherville at Coastal Carvings on Vancouver Island. They'll be available for sale, but still some work to be done on those...they're going to be beauties.
We're also working on a dozen arrows: all natural (oceanspray shafting - harvested by us locally, goose feathers - we found and then cut and ground, sinew wrap - from deer we processed, obsidian points - these we had custom done for us). These are all ready sold - heading to NY in a couple days.
