That looks excellent JB, how long will you be leaving it to season? That'll be the one Gav gave you then (he was very impressed with your military arras!)?
Thanks for the replies.
Huffy- Yes, there are two flipin' great brances at the far end, but I have split it so that one stave mostly misses them which should give me about 82" to play with. While the other is about 66" to the two branches. Fortunately the friend who gave me the log shoots a bow of around 68" nock to nock, so I hope to get his bow out of this piece. I'll try and take a couple of pic's of these branches to show you what I mean.
Leigh- Thank you...
Dave- Yep this is the log from Gavin and I reckon it's gonna need at least 8 months, but probably a bit longer to dry out.
si vis pacem, para bellum
Hi J! Hope it works out for you fine! I'm sure you will craft a real beauty from it!
