I'll be at WTT 4, and so will the bow. I can't thank you guys enough, i've got a feeling that bow is going to see a lot of time in the woods this fall.
Kirk, great job on the finish...it looks unbelievable :o
Oh yea, my two boys think that skull is the coolest thing ever....my have to send their's to Voodoo for some carving :D
If you say you can, or you say you can't....you're right!

I have 5 coats of finish on this now, 3 of them are sealer/ grain filler. i went ahead and started rubbing it out to a satin finish after taking this video, and decided i to put one more coat on the riser and a thin one on the limbs, i had a couple thin spots on the riser i couldn't live with.

i 'll let her set in the warm paint booth all night and do the hand rubbed finish tomorro in the daylight hours. They always come out better polishing them up in the natural light.

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...

Kirk,
Love it man!!!!! Great job brotha! :D I kinda like seeing it all glossy and polished looking! Mikes bow rocks too!! Love the black and red color of that! been doing alot of that color sceeme myself lately.
Ya know what? I think instead of you posting in type we need to see you only in video instead. Im just getting so used to seeing you almost daily now and enjoy your video skitts way more than your posts :P :lol: HEY! ITS A COMPLIMENT!! :D
wouldnt it be really cool if WE ALL that come here had live "shop" web cams that were on 24/7 and could all comunicate like that at any time. ( :? think I saw it on the Jetsons) C-mon tell me that wouldnt be cool as chit!! :D

Great job Kirk, glad to see you get your hands on it! ;)
People used to say that I'd never amount to much but I can always say Ive served as a bad example!

Holy Chit. That turned out awesome. I am sure Kirk is buffing out some white spots :o Kirk get some good pics and post them before you ship.

Mike your bow looks awesome too. That Ebony and paduk look great together.
