If the gods smile and the creek don't rise I am going to glue up and cook my first eastern red cedar laminated longbow. This is a test for me and the new shop. I will post pics (if I ever figure out how to do it) soon. This bow is for the wife, so I am shooting for the 30-35 lbs @ 28" range. 3 lams backed on front and belly with bow tuff. Myrtle wood for the riser. Kinda nervous, but I have a great teacher. More later.
