Made a couple arm guards for a raffle

#1 Post by dhaverstick »


I finished these arm guards yesterday and will be donating them as raffle items at the United Bowhunters of Missouri Rendezvous coming up in a couple of weeks. Both of them have a vegetable tanned cowhide backing and the facing is made from the hide of a large freshwater fish in the Amazon River basin known as a pirarucu. The arrowheads are made from ostrich leg skin and the trim is deer hide. I carved the lace hooks from deer antler and sewed the tan one up by hand using artificial sinew. I sewed the blue/gray one up with artificial sinew and B-50 bowstring material.

Hopefully, they will make a little money for the club.
