Just finished rebuilding my bow oven. New insulation and new lights and new reostat. Just refurbishing my forms and then I'll be ready to glue up another. Want to do more builds this year. Want to be ready for the 2016 swap.

Got the hickory stick bending to 28". First bow that I've done since I altered my tree to account for limb timing, hope I got it right! It's 70" ntn, 65#@28". Planning to temper the belly, nor sure if I should reflex the tips a little. I left the last 8" stiff. It has 1" of follow upon unstringing settling to 3/4", the best of any selfbow I've made yet.  -

I spent the day working on the bows I'm building for my niece and nephew. Both of these bows gave me a few problems, but in the end, they both shoot well and look good.
I'll post pictures after I get some finish on them.

My new year is starting kind of crappy. I had all intentions of hunting with my flintlock today (second favorite thing to my longbow), but a case of muscle spasms in my back got me sidelined. What a wasted day.

You didn't waste any time getting started on your grandson's bow, Roy. Love that profile.
I'm finally getting started on putting together the bow rack that my daughter bought for me last Christmas. Yeah, I'm a little behind on some of my projects. [Roll Eyes]

Happy Birthday Dave!

Just think, if you live to the ripe old age of 80, you're half dead.
