For anyone interested in stepping into the world of making horn bows.

It is amazing the difference a quality rasp can make.  I recently picked up a Universal Bowyer's Rasp from Dean Torges and am thoroughly impressed.  It makes quick work of reducing hard woods like osage without leaving deep tears like my old rasps.

Here is new bow I just completed as a gift for my father-in-law.  It is a self bow made from red elm, 58" nock-to-nock and pulls #32 @ 25 inches or so.  I glued a piece of black walnut to the belly side of the handle and painted some designs on the limbs and nocks.

Any bowyers here use a StavePress before?  I am considering purchasing one.  Otherwise, what creative ways have you guys used to clamp a stave while working on it?
