A "good" friend of mine cut a bunch of guava off of his property and I asked him to keep a couple pieces in his tin shed for me. This was Oct. 2016 I think I posted photos of those staves at some point on here.

I took them out today and roughed a couple out with the machete. Here is what I have.

The first is 67 in, tip to tip. which may change. and has about an inch of deflex in one limb. I may or may not try to flip the tips. we will see how I feel. when we get there.

It has a little wiggle in the deflex limb.
 -

Backs have cambium layer still on them.


Now for the crazy stave. its 66 tip to tip. This was given as a challenge. About 3.5 in of reflex, a snake section, a roller-coaster section and a high crown... we will see how this goes!

Guava makes a gorgeous bow, I will have to say I am a bit jealous.

Sometimes I porpoise, sometimes I fishtail. Maybe I should get back in the boat.

Yeah, that's gonna be fun. On some of those kind of bow you almost have to imagine good tiller. Looking forward to seeing your interpretation.
I've made a few guava bows. It makes a good bow.
