I almost forgot to trim the limb butts! On my riser it wouldn't matter at all if I didn't reduce the butts to 1 1/8" width, but if I didn't these limbs wouldn't fit many of the metal ILF risers out there.

mark your trim line.

Grind. Not too difficult, really.

I like to angle the pad on the riser to more closely match the ILF limb too. Just mark the line and angle the riser slightly into the belt sander. What you get is a riser narrower on the back than on the belly.

That's about it..the rest is just sanding smooth and cleaning her up a bit.....
