metal recurve build

Postby Gino Bruno » Sun Dec 30, 2007 4:37 pm

here is the metal hybrid's twin...... this was the first metal riser i built....... not a real good build along but it was on the old site so i figured i'd bring this one over.

looks like "the donkey" and i must have been milling at the same time......although mine is not as purdy as his and won't be for sale. this bow will be set up to accept both my hybrid and recurve limbs. it is much further along than these pics but figured i'd show a little of it's progress.

well fellas, this thread is going to be on hiatis for a little while as joann and i leave for cancun in the morning. as i was clearing off the memory stick i figured i'd add a few more pics (it is further along than this) of the ground out grip ready for finish (the grip really became much brighter with the finish on it). once my harmonic dampeners get here i will mill out the holes and v-grooves and hit it with dura-coat, set the wood inlays, and mount the limbs.

here are a few pics of the grip;

i guess i could have posted these. this is the block that i glued up to cut and grind the veneers for the poser (pretty) limbs. they match the veneers (previously posted) that make up the wood inlays in the riser and grip. anyway, here are a few pics. when done i will have a set of pretty recurve limbs, carbon recurve and carbon hybrid limbs for the riser.

FD- here are some pics. the limbs shown in these pics are still unfinished and are not for this bow (just to show what they will look like) but the veneers are exactly the same that will go on the "purdy" limbs. the limb pads are interchangable for the longbow limbpads. when finished, i will have a set of the purdy limbs, carbon hybrid, can carbon recurve limbs. both the hybrid and carbon recurve limbs will be finished in snake skins. unfortunately, i did not get the harmonic dampeners in time so i did not use them in this riser...... the next riser is designed around them and will accept ILFs as well as all of my limbs.

TJ- yep, with a zebrawood flare....... it is my wife's bow...... the veneers are just like the metal recurve's but with walnut (wenge is too porus to be a good veneer) and zebrawood.
