I'm just about finished with this new osage selfbow. I've added a couple of coats of Tru-Oil, a leather arrow rest, tip overlays and a decorative backing but I'm still waiting for a care package to arrive from Clint with some tacky accessories which should be here in the next few days. In the mean time here is a little Tacky tease...

Looking good Pat
when was the last bow you made?
At the Classic you said you had not made one for a while?

Mark, probably 2 years or so but it's like riding a bicycle, ya know. [Big Grin]
Clint, it will still be a while. Got a lot of other irons in the fire. I did try the FF string. It is a tad short. I untwisted it some and will try it again and let you know. It sure is skinny. The box of goodies will sure help her meet her full potential...fashion-wise that is. [saywhat]

Mark, she came out of tiller a little so I had to go back to get the limbs evened up. She is 66" t/t, 1 1/2" to about mid limb then tapering to 3/8" tips. She's pulling about 44#@26" now and I hope to keep here about there. Once I get the finish on and she's all dolled up, I'll post more pics. I'll try to get another teaser for you guys soon.

I got zealous and decorated an unproven bow. She came out of tiller so I've had to get that problem worked out first. Retillering shouldn't affect the decorated backing unless I have to pike the bow to add weight. She's in the low 40s at 26" now. I guess we'll just have to see.
I've been building wood bows for 30 years. In the last few years I have slacked off a bit but the "knowns" still bite you in the arse if you ignore them. You'd think I'd learn.
...to be continued.

I got her re-tillered and put about 30 arrows through her yesterday. She still shoots well so I won't have to pike her. I had no predetermined draw weight but was sorta expecting about 45#@26'. I haven't re-checked the weight but I'm satisfied with how she shot. To be continued...

Glad it worked out for ya, Pat. Nothing worse than a bow you are not satisfied with. I've already gotten disgusted and cut bows into pieces.
