Some of ya'll may remember Timo cuttin osage back in Januray. With Tim standing in that hollowed out tree, he did kinda look like a keebler elfe but don't tell him I said that [Big Grin] My good friend Tim gave me a piece of that gold harvest at MOJam, and I just have to make my best bow yet outa her. So I need some help, which is more important? Getting the limbs to bend even out of the fades or getting the tips to bend first? This would be my second attempt at a recurve, I would kinda like it to live.

This is a primo piece of wood.
 -
Here she is roughed out, and tips steam bent.

Dano.....might I suggest you heat gun a sharp deflex at each fade, followed by a couple of snake curves and maybe even drill 2 or 3 'mock' pin-holes in each limb. That should make you feel more at home. [bigsmyl]

Now I feel like Dr. Frankenstien, thanks Don!!! Merry Christmas Buddy.

Doug, I know I'll be bored to death with such a clean piece of wood, but I'll try to get by like it is. [bigsmyl]

Thanks Barry and Merry Christmas to you. The bow on the left is a BBO, I haven't quite finished yet and the one on the right is an osage bow I need to sinew.

You guys are good! I am so amazed at the talented and gifted bowyer on this site! If I made a bow it would probably come out looking like an old man's cane... [Smile]
