Longbow build along part2

Sun 12 December 2010

Today went well I re sanded the belly to ake off all the markings and I drew some more tapers on I was happy with the shape I drew yesterday, I used another straight edge. The glue lines where rather nice .. After cutting the tapers on the bandsaw I started to shape the belly of the bow. After the shaping I tried it on the floor tiller looked good put it on the tiller stick looked good After I was happy that the tiller looked nice I put some set in to the bow bow bending it in the middle and slapping on some glue resentite this time as the cascamite was finished! I stuck on a piece of hickory and tied it up with tyre wrap to let the glue dry this will take another 6 hours to set
