Default A new life for an old bow

Got this Ben Pearson, Colt, 60" 40 lb in a trade. A little sanding, a little clear coat and a lot of love.

Those bows shoot like a dream. All of the Pearson bows named after horses are darn good bows. Great job on the refinish

Looks great! Have an old Pearson Javelina with very similar wood look but red fiberglass on back and belly. Dad got it in early '60s.

I picked up a another Ben person, "Pinto" at a yard sale, $10.00. Lots and lots of varnish and paint. Should have some pics end of this week.

Think there's any pretty wood left under all that? I'm in for the refinishing.

Pinto is white glass on both sides. Think it will look good, want to see the wood!

I got the bow stripped most of the way. Looks like pretty wood.
