Well I did it, I began working the bow stave and I think I went way to soon too fast. Its a long bow its Hackberry but I noticed theres alot of tear out from the sides of the limbs. Which is making it narrower than I wanted I should have probably waited til next year or even October, but I wanted to work on a bow and I have two more staves drying. So its not a total loss. I will be working on getting pictures of it and the other staves and post em here. Plus a picture of a knife Im forging.
