And another knife…

I finished and sold this one yesterday.   Knives seem to be selling much better this year than last.  I don’t know why, but I’m thankful!

Bow number 2

I finished this several days ago, but haven’t had the camera in the shop until today.  So here’s a few pics.  This one is walnut and maple.  Draw weight is heavier than the first one, probably about 50-55 pounds.

 

 

New knife

Hey y’all!

I just finished (and sold) this knife yesterday.  It got a fairly complex damascus pattern.  I like it.

Total length: 8″

Blade thickness: 5/32″

New hobby

Like I need any more…  Oh well.  🙂

I’d been toying with the idea of making a bow for about 15 years, but I just got around to it this year.  I gave this one to my brother, and I’m working on number two now, which will be for my dad.  Number 3 will probably be for me.

If you want to see pictures of the making of this bow, go here.

And here are some finished photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The riser is osage orange and maple, with maple and walnut accent stripes.  The limbs are maple and osage with fiberglass.   I don’t have a way to measure the draw weight, but I’d guess it to be about 40 to 45 pounds.  I’ll probably get number 2 done tomorrow, so I’ll post pictures of it too.
