Bow pics/ideas - Chancey b.

I'm going to order another new bow and having a little trouble deciding on which wood to choose. I narrowed it down to zebra wood,tiger myrtle or myrtle burl with zircote. (I think, there's a lot to pic from):) I like really figured woods that stand out and I like the light and dark wood mix. Any pics or ideas on other woods or those listed would be appreciated! Thanks! I'm new to posting on the wall but have been following it for a couple of years. It has helped me with a lot of questions I have had since I switched to traditional about 4 yrs. ago.

I just ordered a new zebra and zircote KB-X myself . The myrtle bur is very nice also it's hard to beat dark/light wood mix

Got a PCHX not long ago. Myrtle burl/zircote. I have had numerous woods over the yrs. but I like this combo a lot! Also like bocote/zircote. It's hard to get an ugly Widow. I think Toby said they don't make any ugly ones!

I agree! I have never seen an ugly black widow. I think I've seen pics of your myrtle burl on here and it's one of the best looking I've ever seen! Didn't think of that wood until I saw yours.

Chancey b: I agre; I think Greybarks PTF is the all time winner, I like my yew and cocobolo alot, but greybark's is in a class all of its own (too pertty to use )

I've got a PCHX Zicote w/Tiger Myrtle which is a really nice combo. Thinking about ordering another set of Myrtle Burl limbs 10# heavier... I've also got a CHX in Black & White Ebony w/Cottonmouths on the back...

Wonder what a bocote riser/myrtle burl limbs would look like? Hey Toby, get busy & build us one to look at. Bet it will sell fast! Idea! Take suggestions from wallers & pick one to be a winner & give the bow to the winner. Yes, now that's an idea! Most everyone loves giveaway ideas except the giver!

Hey Chuck , love the figuring in your riser as well as in the limb veneers . Hey Bowhunter4life that Zircote riser pops and highlights the limb veneers . Just a note , Out here and up North We are coping with no rain , no snow and 3 degrees of frost . So I practice and drink beer outside "so Canadian Eh " . Cheers All and I do appreciate comments on my bow ...

Hey Code 1 , you will love your wood choices and the fact that they are in a one piece the contrast will stand out even more . Cheers from the West Coast of Canada ...Still no Stanley Cup....

Oh gosh! I wish this would stop. I'm going through BW withdrawal symptoms & my wallet keeps jumping out of my pocket & heading west. (Just joking. Keep the pictures coming!)

So many beautiful combinations out there... My favorite BWs are cocobolo with yew and all zebrawood with cross grain limbs. I have another bow (non-Widow) that is also a looker. That one has a zircote and leapordwood riser with leopard wood/zebrawood spliced limbs. Stunning! Claudia

Wonder what a light colored riser with dark limbs would look like? Maybe myrtle riser with zircote limbs. Myrtle riser with bocote or dark bocote limbs. That's assuming myrtle can be used in a riser. Any one have a picture with a light colored riser/dark limbs?

Buckshotap, I have a recurve that has a myrtle riser and koa limbs. Looks great and a very unusual combination. Claudia
