Yup. He has 60 acres loaded with Osage, so he cuts me Osage wood. The bow in the picture came from an Osage tree on his property. I told him I want that Osage tree in the back ground next. LOL

So far today I steamed, straightened and reflexed a pair of osage billets, stripped down 6 turkey wings for wing bone calls and feathers for arrows, and made some osage and hophornbeam handle blocks from 'scrap' cutoffs and such. Gonna clean the gutters of leaves and then head back into the shop.

Found a local spot where I can sign up to use a fully kitted out wood workshop. Met the guy runs the place - as it turns out, his Mrs. wants to get into archery and bow making.

Signing up on Wednesday.

Always enjoy your builds, Roy.

I'll come up with something ornery later. Right now I have a toothache. [biglaugh]
