I have a couple days in the shop to build myself a new bow. Crotalus sold a week ago to a nice man from Finland and I have been left without a bow.
This was my chance to build something that I really wanted. To incorporate what I have learned to re create my old bow, but with some touches I had been thinking about.
It is nearly finished, just cycling through coats of oil right now. She is a beauty.
Like Crotalus, it is heavily recurved and dyed british tan. The tip overlays are buffalo horn and the arrow rest is the antler base of a small spike buck I shot with a bow.
Tillered out to 45 lbs at 28 inches and backed with silk and diamond back rattler skins. I am proud to say this is my new bow.
It will be one of my entries into the Sidney fine art show in sept.
