Yes add the drop. You and I think alike. I was going to do basically the same thing with abalone on my next bow but it will be in the top instead of lower and I was thinking to the shape of the tip. Will you inlay the drop or put it on top? Nice Work Hera, God Bless, Steve

Hey hera, do you just let the glue squeeze out from under those overlays and then just wipe it off?

Hera, you glue the overlay laminations together, then you shape them, then you glue them to the limb tip, correct?

Do you shape the bottom of the overlay to match the limb curve before you glue it on? Or do you clamp it into place and bend it with clamping pressure?
