Black locust fumed flattie (No. 77) – Stonehill Primitive Bows

Black locust fumed flattie (No. 77)

This Black Locust has a nice even crown and a dead flat belly. The tips are flipped with steam and are tapering from the flat belly into a triangular cross section. The outers are stiff. On the back is rawhide, stained with 3 different colors and fading out towards the tips. The rawhide strips are cut not at the edge, but about ⅛” away from. This makes a nice side effect. The overlays are made from plum heartwood.

The almost finished bow with rawhide and overlays on was in the fuming pipe for five days. The final tillering on the belly brought out the fading effect.

I found a matching burgundy leather for the grip and made her a matching string.

A simple, proven design but a pleasure to shoot.

Very nice bows you have done. What are you using for weather protection? That shiny surface adds very nice effect on the bows. Best regards: Andrei

    Andrei, I use a homemade mixture of beeswax, true terpentine, dammar and carnauba wax. It belongs to the treatment whether you get a shiny or glossy result.
    I have visited your interesting website – but clue of the language, haha.
