Really? My writing mistake means this bow must be named The Osage Hog. Very original.
This is only my second stave adventure. Great weekend. Made more progress than ever have in 2 days. Learning how to better use the drawknife and less use of the scrapper.So much faster with the drawknife but uhhhhh so easy to screw up.
I need to get back to the mesquite. Osage is so nice to work with but….
Can’t wait to see a nice rattlesnak backed Rick Stick!And I’m thinking this Osage will end up with a rattlesnake hide backing, thanks to CMoor
(Hungrey4rabbits, yours will be next)
Worn out this morning. 2 hours of difficult hiking then an hour at the Osage. I have it down to the same growth ring full length. Now to draw my design on the back. It wiggles around a bit so will be taking my time with the design.
