New Bow Grip

I put a new grip on my bow tonight. I also gave it an arrow rest. This along with the nock bead will help keep my shots consistant as the arrow will always rest in the same location each time. Here is a picture of it.

At top left is the arrow rest and you can see the nock bead on the string on the right side of the bow.


On saturday I drove to Mooreland, Indiana to pick up 19 staves of wood from a person whose ebay auction I won. I won them for only $30. Often you could pay $30 or more for just one stave. I got a good deal. Here is the picture from the ebay auction.



I'll have to let these pieces season for a year before I work on them, but it's safe to say I won't need to buy any wood for a long time.

you left out the part where you rammed my truck into my table saw, damaging them both.

I am happy you got them for $30, I remember you were willing to pay $100. I would like a hand crafted bow. I will pay $30 which will cover the cost of all your woodie sticks.

Fooie, I figured you'd want to blog about that and I didn't want to steal your thunder.

Bleach, I will make you a bow. I'm trying to get Fooie to make one with my assistance.

you always wreck my truck you lummox.

making a bow is on my list of things to do this year. it is item #1042.

I like shooting your bows. the best is when i miss and it hits something else random in your basement. I also like shooting at things close up.

I think you should make a long bow next, like a 6-8' tall one.

The only bows I've used are self bows that my brother or I made. I would like to put recurves in a self bow sometime.

I'll check our your website.
