Default My Newest Bow

I just finished making another longbow. I made this one from a red oak stave, backed it with heavy linen, and tillered it to 83 lbs. I coated it with 5 coats of Minwax, and wrapped the grip with suede latigo. I coated the grip with mink oil to weather-proof it.

I named it Thunderstyk. I shoots like a dream with either wood, carbon, or aluminum arrows (it does the best with 2275s), and hits like a ton of bricks.

My next project is going to be a bamboo-backed hickory flatbow.
