These bows were made for my niece and her husband as wedding gifts. I promised these to them when they were married five years ago! At least I followed through and made them as promised I guess. The dark bow is his and measures 60” AMO and draws 62#
28 inches, it uses cocobolo in the riser (handle) section and bocote as a veneer over the core limb laminations. He shoots right handed. Her bow measures 56" AMO and draws 34# 28 inches, using bocote in both the riser and the limb veneers. She shoots left handed. I had fun making them and it was a joy to see the look on their faces when I suprised them with the gifts, though it was five years late.
I found no “tags” that were related to bows or the skills involved in their making! “Toy” is as close as I could get, though it really is a tool you can have fun with. Like most tools I guess!
