My vice isn't  bolted to a table, so i came up with a way to use a cinder block to be able  to use my draw knife, and the flock like to hang out, thinking thw wood shavings are food.

I used to use a “butt-vise”. Get a hard wooden chair and just sit on the stave. I made many bows like this before getting a normal vise. Not the best but it works.

Which, let’s face it, is looking more and more likely.  Grin

Likely?! If you live in Seattle or Minneapolis I think it already has hit the fan!  Once again very glad to live in Texas.

... although, another good reason to live in Texas: you don’t need a bow because there’s guns everywhere!

I’m all for Minneapolis disbanding the police. Should make for great television. Hopefully those who aren’t a fan of mob rule can get out before martial law is enacted.

I'm thinking some kind of maple for that stave.  Possibly pear or apple.  Not hickory.
