Take Down Bow

I've been working on a take-down bow recently. It is out of a piece of Osage Orange stave that I have had in my stockpile for about 14 years. So it should be aged about right to make a very effecient bow. I added some recurve to each limb. You can see one of the limbs in my form waiting to cool down. I usually heat the area to be bent with a heat gun (paint stripper).
This bow is left handed. I shoot both left and right handed but prefer left. I have a pair of rattle snake skins which I will apply to the face of the bow sometime this week. I'll post the finished bow once it is done. X.
