The Osage Orange Bow (Maclura pomifera)________$500.00
Osage Orange is a favorite nostalgic wood of many bowyers & archers.
It’s bright electric yellow heartwood soon darkens to its classic
amber hue. Osage bows have the drag - through - the - brush
durability that many folks have come to rely on.

The White Wood Bow_________________________$ 450.00
(Elm, Hickory, Hackberry, Maple, Hop Hornbeam etc.) The name
‘white wood’ refers to the color of the sapwood from which these bows
are made. As with any bow wood, when made & designed properly,
these white woods will produce beautiful sweet shooting bows.
These woods are much more abundant where I live and so are a bit
easier for me to obtain.
I make are one-of-a-kind works of art,
beautifully handcrafted with flowing lines that follow the
nature of the wood with an emphasis on efficiency.
Each bow is inscribed with it's unique name,
specs, signed & dated then sealed with a traditional
finish of linseed oil, shellac & bees wax or Tru Oil. The
bow handle is then adorned with buckskin that I skin
& brain tan myself giving it an ancient look and feel.
