I burnt feathers on 37 arrows into a shield cut pattern. I couldn't keep the garage doors open much because of the rain.

Roy, is that top limb just a tad stiff coming out of the fade?

Finished another set of limbs for a 3 piece I've been designing for a while now. So far I really like it.  -

I started a red oak board bow for my 4 year old, following a build along on this site.

Oh and i worked on a bamboo arrow, trying to get my technique down. Other than sanding the nodes, I cant get much straighter than this. Its still very long, like 39", so I have some room to play. It seems pretty stiff, like a 7595 Goldtip Traditional almost. I dont have a spine tester yet.

Very nice, Randy..

Clint it does look a tad flat there. He shoots 3 under also. He took it home to put a 100 shots through it, then when he comes back we will fine tune the tiller.
Those are 7 up cans on the floor:)
