    OK guys why the cold shoulder? I did a great job on this bow and not one coment. Agreed it may have been a tacky way to introduce the bow but I thought it would be funny to revisit the "longbow porn" thread. Sorry my apologies.

    Ok, I'll ask, does she have a twin sister? Seriously though, that is one sweet looking bow. What are the specs?

    It's a slightly recurved long bow 62" NTN and 40 pounds at 28". I heayily traped the back of the bow and it is smoking fast for it's weight and type. This was my first traped limbed bow, alot more to it than a standar flat bow, ya end up doing some light side to side tillering as well as tillering for limb balance. The limbs are tri lamed purple heart and beefwood, backed with goat rawhide. Added some walnut and ash for the riser. The rest is full center cut.



    Thanks man!

    Actually the man it's intended for is going to have to fight Tracy for it if I don't hide it from her soon. I keep catching her eyeballing the bow through the shop door like a kid waiting for the cookies to cool enough to eat.

    The shop is tinny! Used to be our spare bedroom, I have to open the window to rip stock down for laminations!

    PS Tracy threw a new challenge down for me this AM. Apparently there is a young lefty looking for a bow..........first one was a pain but it might be time to revisit bows for the south pawed. After I make a delivery to the Homer area.............and make one for me. Ain't that a kick in the pants I still don't have a bow I made for myself!


    PS hate that I am without spell checking! Don't like looking like a moron!

    WoW that is one nice looking girl you got there.
    I shot recurves and long bows as a kid and used a recurve until I was near 40 and I bought my first compound. Kind of got infatuated with it but she is losing her appeal to me these days and my eyes have begun to wander. Dreaming of sleek legs and suttle curves, sporting an osage tan. Looking at that beauty you have just reiterates my longing bow needs. The talk of her speed with a light pull is more than I can stand I have to have one for myself.
    Beautiful craftsmanship never goes out of style.

    Drop me a PM if your interested in a custom creation from my shop for your bow rack. I only biuld all natural bows but they stand up nicely against most glass bows. Frankly I think the smooth shooting charictor is directly related to a rock solid design and lack of inorganic materials.


    Hows the spelling Hunt aK?

    Default go with firefox

    Just plain bad. (h_ak, not Rick).

    Rick, try switching to firefox as your main browser; it has a built in spell checker that will highlight a misspelled word, then you right click on it and then choose the word you meant to spell. I spell well but still it finds my misspellings (<--just now it found me typing mispellings, for example) many times a day (before hunt_ak does ).

    This firefox speller works on any page you type into; very nice. (and free) There's way more reasons to go with firefox, but that would take us off course here.
