Osage static, 55#/28″ (No. 47) – Stonehill Primitive Bows

Osage static, 55#/28″ (No. 47)

This bow is asymmetrical with a positive tiller of about 7 mm. Limbs are dead flat on belly, on the back a shallow crown. The fades are 6” long (widest part of limb – to handle). String groove filed into the levers. It was a nice clean stave, only two pin knots with no problems.
Recurves are steam bent, string alignment corrected with steam + dry heat.
Finish will be several coats of hardening oil ( only the first is on yet).
The bow is not heattreated.
