Last night took my hide out of the wood ash/water solution and rubbed the hair off the hide which came out so easily! I just used the side of my hand as a plow and brushed it off and then went back with a rag and cleaned up. I cut some slits and ran a piece of rope through one end and secured it to some stakes down at the creek to rinse all the alkalinity out.

The weather has been pretty cold and the water in the creek is very cold, so I am going to leave it through tonight as well and take it out tomorrow and membrane it (gives the hide a day and a half to rinse out). Then it's tacking it up and letting it dry.

Other wise I started to remove the bark and inner bark off of another hickory stave. I found that this stave has a beautiful big knot at mid limb on one limb that extends from the edge of the stave to the middle of the stave. And like a foot towards the handle from the knot is a series of 4 pin holes in a line and evenly spaced out, that look like either barbed wire poked in or a woodpecker with OCD went to town. [laughing] [dunno]

I filled the holes with wood glue and dust and then put super glue around them as well as around the knot, hopefully this stave will yield an interesting bow for my hunting bow this year! [thumbsup]
