Man what a virtual blast.

Makes one really happy to see this group of fun folks.


One pic that really caught my eye was this one.




Because I thought I had invented this method of the "Tiller-tuneing". It works great don't it.

Noel, I bet you get a tribe of bowmakers going over there. This stuff is contagious, and incurable

I just want to say thanks to all the folks who participate in these get togethers and for all you who share the pics with those of us who can't attend, but sure would love to.
Many thanks for the inspiration,
Luke

Now that I can log on again, I want to thank Richard Saffold, the man who inspired me to make an Ipe/bamboo ELB...
On this day of March 17th....Richard tuned up my bow like Enzo Ferrari would tune up your car.....Richard encouraged me to lighten up the tips, and he was able to see the subtle things that mere mortals don't see in the tiller and action of bow.....certain small things must be done very well for optimum performance... at the time my bow was fine, but not hitting on all cylinders.
The result is now a very fast, crisp and delightful bow to shoot...Thank You Richard !

Alex, you are most welcome..Maybe Enzo would be interested in a trade? (no I don't think so), but I appreciate the complement, and I enjoy tweaking these bows, and bows in general..I too learn from it as well as there is a wide variety in the ipe species yet they all perform well.

Most of the bowyers in our group has a bow like yours or has made one. This speaks volumes both for the wood, and the nature of the bowyers here..On the larger plane when folks see these and bows like John's Oak/boo, and ken's "booniper"

It makes them think twice when they read or hear from some
"renown" bowyer who says these bows don't work..even when he hasn't tried one himself ..

time to go glue-up my bamboo, and poplar bow!

Richard, I saw Gilbert Sunday, and he was working on his ipe/boo that he got from you. John and I talked him into narrowing his outer tips quite a bit. He was starting to love how it shot... You should have seen how happy he was.

Rookie, glad you liked the photos. Glad everyone is enjoying them... I am grateful myself, to the other photo posters...

Phil, I have three of your arrows (along with some black gloves, a pair of scissors, and an oak stave that somebody left behind). I will get them to you next time I see you.
