Johandre,

That is a nice hog, some nice carbanosi there. Well done. Did you make the bow yourself?

Thanks

Pete

Hey Johandre,

Where are you based? I would love to get together and shoot a bit. I also build my own bows, so we could do a couple of builds together to?

Thanks

Peter

Hi Johandre,

I'm in Krugersdorp. I shipped some glass from the uk when I returned to sa, I have some extra if you want. I buy my glue from Jaco Wessels at timberpoint archery. I also get all my lams from him. He sells pretty much everything for bow building. I have a hybrid bow form to.

Pm me your details and ill call you to arrange and give you Jacos details.

Thanks

Pete
