First bow in over a year

#1 Post by rodlonq » Wed Aug 29, 2018 6:50 pm

This is the first bow I have made in over a year since I had my shoulder rebuilt. It will be the main raffle prize at the Tully Invitational shoot this weekend. The woods are QLD walnut and PNG white tulip oak. The bow is 64" NTN and weighs in at 46#@28". The brace height is a little high in the photo at 8" but I expect the new string to stretch overnight.

Thanks fellas, was very pleased with the results. They sold $1100 worth of raffle tickets so it was well worth the effort.

Cheers, Rod

Thats awesome Rod, and it sounds like the Tully guys got a great benefit out of it for the raffle. Great work!
