    Yep, our gear collection has grown too -- I'm sure we can find a few things to donate to the drawing this time...

    Y'all are in for a treat this time. My wife finally agreed to hang along. Well, she might not be able to hang since I don't have all the warm stuff you need in what has been some chilli nights at Fairfield in the past. So add one to the mix.

    I'm also planning a couple of Show-N-Tells. The first, at the request of Tarp, a new Self Feeding Rocket/Heater Stove to be used with your "Smokehouse" Tarp. Second, how to make a long bow for under $40.

    Can't wait to see everyone!

    Looking forward to the bow presentation. Will there be a materials list to bring before the hang?

    Me too. Are we speaking of archery or fire by friction?

    Oops, missed Slinky's post about long bows. Glad Mrs. Slinky will be with us too!

    I'll put something together, but this will be more of a discussion rather than a build. I could put a list together snd ee could start the process. Remember I said for under 40 not in less than two days. I want to show you the process and techniques so that you walk away with skills needed to build your own long bow. Part of the process includes gluing which cuts into our weekend, but we'll see if we can't get you started then you can finish up at home.

    For those of you that would like to participate in making a bow the following is a list of items you might want to bring with you. Please understand, making a bow is a time consuming event. It would be nearly impossible to complete at camp in less than three days with all the other activities planned for the weekend. But what we can get done is the rough cut, handle build-up (gluing), shaping, and scrapping. Bring the following and I'll get you as far along as we have time and I'll make sure you understand what needs to be completed by you when you get back home.

    1. 1"x3"x6' Red Oak
    2. .5"x1.5"x24" Red Oak
    3. Titebond III Glue (16 oz.) You'll need to rest when you get home.
    4. Several type of tools: Rasp (Flat/Arched,Round), 1" Planer, Paint Scrapper.
    5. Sandpaper (80 - 120 grit)

    That should be enough for a 2-4 hr class getting the bow into shape before you finalize the tiller. I'll explain everything at the class and show you my recently finished Red Oak Long Bow.

    Random question: For the wood, I don't know how much good red oak I can get my hands on. But there's no shortage of osage orange / bois d'arc wood. Would that be suitable instead?

    'Nuttin' prettier than a Bois D'arc long bow! Except, maybe, a Bois D'arc reflex longbow...

    Osage is great wood for a bow, but it's usually more expensive. The red oak at home depot will run you about $10-$12 for both pieces.

    If anyone needs me to bring them there red oak I can take care of that. We'll settle up later.
