3789Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: Learning bow making
- Nov 3, 2000For those who are not loggers. The Osage tree is considered to be a
worthless tree by most owners. If you take the time to find the owner and
ask you might be surprised. The best and easyest are in fence rows away
from houses. Do not be surprised when your chainsaw throws sparks when
cutting it. You will also find that two years goes by quickly when you
start working on bows.
