Apart from making green wood ash bows as a kid this is the only bow Ive made ,off hand think it was about 8 years ago but would love to customize some and possibly try making a few more one day .
The yew came from an old Churchyard yew tree in central Wales and I used a draw knife and small hatchet to do most of the work followed by a drum sander to finish then wet and dry papers .
certainly not a pretty thing but it shoots well enough for my needs ,(Ive no idea on the poundage/ draw weight )
As in the original post here’s also a close up of the handmade canvas arrow bag made up from a C-130 Hercules drop chute bag , its on a webbing sling that can be detached for belt carry if needed and folds up or down for use or transport .

Hey guys, Here’s a quick update. We just finished recording drums for SSL II. Mikko flew in from Australia where he was on tour with Apocalyptica. This guy is an ANIMAL on drums and there is no higher compliment than that. He was able to bang out 8 tracks in 2 days like a champ. Much respect! The atmosphere in the studio is very relaxed and free from frustration… I’m quite enjoying myself as I haven’t had one panic attack yet. Now that the drums are there I have set up my amps and recording chain to lay down the guitars. I don’t have the luxury this time to spend two months on it which is probably good since last time I ended up chasing the dragon (a.k.a. sound that doesn’t exist). Ok, let’s all get back to work and I wish everybody some sunny days. We deserve it! Richard ZK
Just a little doodle of my goals for the summer. I have a massive stack of graphic novels I’ve been wanting to get through and now is the time! I’m also researching agents and finishing up revisions on my book to send it out again. It’s going to happen this month! A few other little goals and some more that I’m adding:
Finish reading Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon
Hand Letter something every day! (even if it’s just on a sticky note!)
Anyone else have some goals for their summer? Happy June, everybody! <3
One of my favorite moments of drum corps. Finishing my show and just looking at the crowd stand up and applaud all the hard work I have put into the summer. Can’t help but smile. (We just finished a circus too so I had to smile) lol
