Restoration

Years ago somebody decided to cover the original wood-finish of this bow with some sort of black lacquer-coating. While harmless to the bow’s purpose it conceals the natural beauty of a one-piece recurve, so I’ve decided to begin wearing the black-coating away.

It is a slow process. The natural wood-finish of the bow is somewhat delicate and abrasives could really damage it, but a little bit of acetone and elbow-grease will do the trick. I spent about an hour slowly working to wear away the coating over the weekend and the results are already splendid.
