      My brother asked me to build a custom bow for his daughter (my niece) for Christmas. I don’t require a great deal of arm twisting to build a bow and even less when it is for family!

      Nice! 35#’s is stout for a young lady…. She must not be a wee little thing.

      Nothing can be better than a bow for X-mas!

      That’s a beautiful work of art. May I ask what length string it takes?

      Steve she draws about 24″ so it should be around 25# at her draw length. She is 14 so I was wanting to build something that she can grow up with. I made it 62″ so that it would be extra smooth in the draw. Lol

      The string length is 58″

      Very beautiful. Will she have some arrows with it? She might just disappear for the rest of the day after she opens that package. Thanks for posting. Best, dwc

      I sent my brother the arrow details so he can secure those along with tab- arm guard etc. I think he is as excited as I am to set her up with the full package. I even have a couple videos links that I send showing the process of stringing a bow and nocking an arrow etc.

      I even offered to show her myself if he wanted to fly me out to Colorado during deer season. Lol

      If I weren’t already happily married, I’d find a way to marry into that family. Beautiful piece of bowmaking exceeded only by the generosity behind it.

      Wow. Your bow making art is only superseded by your efforts to improve the lives of those less fortunate overseas.

      My niece received her new bow- I was worried it would not get there in time but it showed up on the 23rd just in time. I got this picture sent to me this morning.

      That’s really cool! Jeff Kavanaugh has posted a couple of videos on YouTube of his daughter shooting. Worth checking out and maybe your niece would be interested. That’s a great gift for all involved. Best, dwc

      That’s a beautiful bow! I’m always amazed at you guys who can make bows! Such fine art and precise craftsmanship! I like the piano too! That girl’s got it going on! Music and archery! Me in a nutshell!!:D
