I've Been meaning to start a static build along but never have had time, theres been some good build alongs showing how to make the selfbow recurve but none for the bamboo backed static recurve... I have a few statics to build so I said heck why not, I've always enjoyed Ferrets and John Scifres build alongs... Ok what I have is a homepage with msn so bare with me:) heres the link to follow the progress of building the bamboo backed static recurve... hope you guys enjoy it. I'll be adding pictures as I go so be patient... Also feel free to ask any questions.

awesome Jd!

I notice you add a piece between the stock and the backing. Is this a piece to transition between bending and non bendin to keep the handles from popping off? If not what purpose does it server?

Thanks

JD-
I notice that you've got more than one caul going at a time, I assume on different bows. Is there any specific reason to glue the billets together before you recurve them?

Hey if my wife would let me my whole living room would look like that. Not just the Bull. Tools and all. LOL She thinks its bad enough that I have taken over her parking spot in the garage.

JD,

10-20 hours in the form clampd up seems like a long time. But I've only done one static. We steamed it and bent it and held it for 10-5 min. Alot of the curve relaxed. Seems your way works pretty good. I will have to try it one day when I build another recurve.

and I just happen to have some osage slats and bamboo that Dianne got me for Christmas last year [Big Grin] ...timing couldn't have been better JD! Really excellent work on explaining things. [thumbsup]

Finally a build along by someone that knows what they are doing [bigsmyl]

lilhunter, dang your getting ahead of me:) what your seeing is an 18" 3/16" center lam, its put in to keep the handle area from bending, my slats are 7/16" - 1/2" when glue up and I feel like that area needs additional beefing up.

There reason the Bulls in the shop is that I don't have ceilings bid enough to have it in the house... believe me I've tried:)

Way cool J.D.! This will help with that "What am I gonna do with that 4th set of slats" problem I got.

-Tom

p.s. I know where to get the garrolite and when you add it on, but I forgot how thick it was and if you used Urac for it.
