Congrats, Jon! Don't listen to H8noncubs. That aint the reason. The real reason is you'll both be too tired after chasin' the kid all day! [dunno]

I shot my HBO and old HBH and two bows I was repairing. Both are HBO. One had a tip overlay of osage split. It split again after 3 shots so back to trying to repair. Think I'll grind off the first overlay, glue on a new one, and rasp it into shape. The second repair job wasn't really a repair. I had to add an arrow rest for a leftie. How many of you are right handed but shoot south paw? Or vice-versa? [Confused]

Worked on the bow for the swap and helped along my bow building "student" with his first bow from a hickory stave I gave him. I just hope he sands it very smooth and then sands it some more like I suggested. I want him to have a really nice bow when finished not like the rough looking board bow he "finished" a few months ago.

Looking great Roy.
For the last five days we have been working on cleaning out a back room in the shop. Just found the floor for the first time in a few years. It was an old tool repair room that turned into a junk pile. It will be some nice storage area for bow bench parts and staves.
Worked on my sons first buckskin today. He got his first deer this year so I decided to make a warshirt for him with it.

Aweaome keenan. Congratulations on the deer. Bow old is your boy? I took my 8 year old elijah out this spring for his first turkey. What a great feeling as a father.

You are right it is some awesome father son time of building memories.

@Keenan: I understand the feeling of seeing the floor for the first time in a while. Yesterday I cleaned a pile of rock chips and I remembered oh yeah this floor is somewhat level.

A few hours in the shop today with my buddy Will yielded a few hickory/ipe and bamboo/ipe glue up kits. One might find it's way to being a trade bow. [Smile]
