I don't build hardly any bows in the summer. Too many other things to do. But this is the first glue up of the fall season. I met a guy at the Pine Hill trad shoot this past summer and he seen the bow I donated to the Pine Hill club to be auctioned off. So he asked me about me teaching him how to build his own bow. I seen him a couple other times before this but we never really got to talk much. So I said sure I will help you make a bow! "And because of him, that is how I got that load of Osage logs in my other thread.." So he has been to my shop twice now and the last trip we got it glued up. He lives an hour's drive away so he only comes down once a week. So ya all will have to keep checking back to see how his progress goes.

This is him cutting the Osage, name is Tim.

I'd post pics of what I worked on today, but it's not worth the hassle.

Thanks, Jeff. Actually Imgur.com is sooo much easier and faster than photobucket.
Here is the bow Bowjunkie worked on today. He has been my mentor in bow building for 15 years.. Cause I'm a slow learner... LOL

Tri-Lam looks good, what are the specs on the bow like taper what, taper what have you or whatever. Laminated Wood bows are sure a pain to taper for proper tiller. For me anyway.

Bow is Osage belly, red elm core lam, boo backed. 62" tip to tip. 1 1/4" wide at flares, tapered to 1/2" wide at tips. I leave the Osage belly 1/4" thick with no taper. The core lam is 3/16th thick at the riser, tapered to 1/6th thick at the tips. Boo is 1/8th thick at riser, tapered to 1/16th at tips. Shooting for 50# @ 26" draw. Won't have any problem reaching that weight.

Thanks for the specs, 50# @ 26". That would rip my shoulder out. 40-43# is max for me. Dang I hate getting old, if its not my back its my hands, knee etc...etc..

Dont know how Howard Hill pulled an 80# bow, even in my prime it would of been a chore.

Bob, I use unibond800.

Stic, the snake bow is bowjunkies bow.
I love the dust deputy, it does a super job. Made a huge difference in cutting down on the dust.
