Lookin good Roy! (the bow, not you) [laughing]

I slid a mini excavator over a bank and banged my head and left shoulder pretty nicely.

Kind of sore, but think none the worse for wear.

Stay sharp, Kenny.

I just smoked the motor on my bandsaw, so taking opportunity to upgrade from 1 hp to 1.5hp. Should have new motor late next week.

Finishing this bow up. Sprayed the first coat of Thunderbird on it and I really like how it came out. Super smooth with very little issues. Wet sanded the bow with 1000 grit paper and will spray it with flat tomorrow. Hoping a new bow may turn my luck around for the last couple weeks of my hunting season...it has been a tough one yet again!

I hope you're ok buddy!

I have to say, a sander with some coarse grit belt is dangerous . May not cut as deep as a saw but removes material very quickly.....

Stay sharp, Kenny.
