Well I cropped this riser on each end back one inch. I got rid of the outer alignment pin because it was in the way of my cut! :o I drilled out the inboard pin hole and installed another insert. So now I have two bolts and no pin. I'll take some photos a little later after my latest laminate on the back of the riser sets up good.

Yep, yep, and yep! I'm learning a lot with this one. Here is my new limb. And the new shortened riser. I got some epoxy in my inboard inserts that I have to clean out, and then I'll show you some new photos. I'm sorry I'm updating so slow, but have another build I'm in the middle of as well.

Love the way that backed riser looks!

You're not using washers on the bolts?

I was just gonna use the phenolic pad they are sitting on. Do you think that will be a problem?

It was a real chore getting that black glass to fit properly!

I'm thinking of laminating another shorter bloodwood riser overlay and some bloodwood in the tips.

I'd be worried about it cracking over time. I think washers help to distribute the pressure over a bigger area.

Alright, it's starting to come around. I'll shoot her at first light, and then lot's of sanding. After I finish my other build that I'm working on, I'll finish this one out.

wow people are going to remember that bow-I really like grey actionwood.


I always ask-how do you radius your site window and shelf? I hate doing that and am never happy.
there are 2 dates on your marker.Your life is the dash in between.

Mike, I cut it out with a hacksaw and chisel out the chunks. I then file it down to where I want it. I hit the inside corner of shelf/window with a chainsaw file and then take out the edges of the round groove with a finer file.

Yep, have been working her on a string. I have some limb twist due to my blind faith in my drilling jig, but not enough to totally scrap her. I'll be doing it differently next time. I have learned plenty of good lessons on this one.
