Nasty Apple - pic heavy build

08 February 2017 - 06:02 PM

This one started off with a real gnarly Apple fork.. a big one... by pic 2 you can see the big rot crack running down the center (bad news), so it's time to go to the vise test,,, after ripping it in half with my hands, I decided to call in the experts.. after a resounding "no way" and "better just to scrap it" I promptly ignored the advice of my smarter and prettier peers, and went downtown to browntown with this badboy, completely filling the inside with with epoxy and sawdust and ashes to color it.. after a monumental effort involving a belt sander, I decided to see what I was left with and whether I could break it.... I could not. so I pressed on, rasping and filing and shaping (and repeatedly trying to break it) til I found what I was holding out for!!! a slightly less unsightly and structurally improved chunk of woood. there are a few little spots I ran out of patience to fill (again) with epoxy, so barring a few details and a little bit of asymmetry, I'm pretty happy that I slugged on with it. it's finished with a blend of oil/poly, four or five hands worth.. headed off to it's new owner soon.. hope you guys like it... Or at least tolerate it's existence.

Burly Mule-- by Bugsbrew

28 January 2017 - 08:52 AM

Hey all,, I just got this genius Mule from mr @Bugsbrew .. a paper Micarta core that almost looks like pants, with stabilized Redwood Burl.. it shoots fantastic and is definitely my favorite frame to date, mine or probably otherwise.. it's sized down to 80% and fits me perfectly. he also threw in some badas s little marbles,, and some bandage, and of course, a Rayshot to back it all up.

judgement time..
