Comments about Osage Bow Building Lumber 5/8" x (68"-72"):

This is a very good deal for Osage. This bow was built entirely of 3rivers products. Osage lumber, Osage handle blanks, artificial Rattlesnake skin, B-50 string material, and Hickory backing. The first attempt ended with a piece of hickory that had a knot on it. Backing failed at the knot and split the Osage core. Next piece I checked the moisture content and found that it was below 8%. Broke the second attempt. Third I hydrated in the bathroom for a month and began work on it. Turned out great!! She is 65" long. Pulls 58lbs@28". 3rivers is very reliable. I trust them with all my bow making materials, advise, and their fast and friendly service.

        Comments about Osage Bow Building Lumber 5/8" x (68"-72"):

        I have been making bowsfor a long time, but this osage lumber is worth it ! I added a hickory backing to it and horn tips and it turned out to bea 73# at 30 in. I could of made a higher draw weight like 85 lbs but i didnt want that. it is totally worth it and i am going to make an 80 lb pretty soon!

          Comments about Osage Bow Building Lumber 5/8" x (68"-72"):

          I used a board to laminate with a hickory backing. This osage was a treat to work with. I didn't have a problem with knots of where the wood lines went.

          I was able to make a 67lb @ 28 inch Longbow. I will attempt to attach images.

          This December and January I will probably make yet another Osage and Hickory longbow. So I plan on buying another board.
