Another gift for my step dad’s birthday. This one is a compound bow rack, part of a set with my last project post, a gun rack The antlers are made of oak and the arrowhead is made of bookmatched wenge and maple. The pattern on the wenge turned out awesome, it almost looks like an evil deer head (see pic 4).

Much of the credit for the design goes to two websites – here and here and an LJ's project by mtnwild.

Nicely done! I like the arrowhead, how did you get the effect of the chipped edges?
