Some hickory rod stock
« on: September 24, 2019, 01:41:58 PM »
Today I doweled out some hickory to 3/8" for some bow form pegs and there will be a few leftover for ramrods.  It wasn't easy to find really straight grain hickory but this stuff was very very straight.   Think it would rival straight split out rods.

Also had this piece of teak flooring left over from an arrow footing project and eas able to get a 29" dowel out of it for a rod for a 28" barreled gun.
