Comedy set back

So, a while back I found a stick that looked like it would make a promising bow rest. 

I shaved off the bark.

Drilled a hole in the bottom.

Found a suitable bit of metal for the ground spike. 

Inserted the ground spike with some 2-part epoxy resin. Waited for it to harden. 

Painted the stick with wood sealant to make it waterproof. And ta-da! 

One beautiful new bow rest sticking in the nice soft lawn…
…which snapped the first time I stuck it in the harder soil at the club range.

Rotten at the core, see? So, lesson learnt. Back to the drawing board.
