Bow Swap Build for Apex

Postby BK in TEXAS » Sun Jul 12, 2009 9:59 pm

One of the neat things about this swap is that I've had the chance to chat with a couple real nice guys that I probably wouldn't have called otherwise. Good stuff.

So after talking with Marty this is going to be a 1-piece hybrid with a low grip ; 62" AMO ; 52-55lbs @ 27"

Other than that the only request he had was a darker riser & lighter limbs.

Here is my lumber corner: I really really need to do some organizing. Blocks & pieces are everywhere & the pampers boxes are full of unsorted call blanks. Uggg.

Image


Ok...so I narrowed it down to a few pieces. The top is Iroko, middle Wenge, bottom Rosewood.
After staring at them for a good half hour I decided to use all 3. I think it'll work, I just hope it's not to busy. I should know after gluing the riser together.

Image

After a little time with a pencil & eraser I went to the bandsaw & started cutting. I got both accent pieces cut & the wenge piece fitted in the rosewood. That's as far as I got. Tomorrow I'll grind an accent strip for between the wenge & rosewood. Since the Iroko is going to overlap the wenge, I'll need to glue up the wenge/accent strip/rosewood section before cutting out the cradle for the Iroko.

Only got a little done last night....had to wait for smooth-on to cure. The Wenge & Maple accent are glued to the Rosewood, and tonight I'll cut out the cradle & fit in the piece of Iroko then glue it up.

Canary Marty :) I think I am seeing where you are going with the riser-pretty neat.
