Wow! This thing has a couple of issues, but shoots better than anything I have built so far. This thing has excellent potential! I was stacking arrows at 28 yards. The forward riser is the most pointable bow I have handled. Both limbs on this one are twisted, due to my hard-headedness in relying on my drilling jig. I can hardly wait to glue up another and drill it properly. I will finish this one out and hunt with it. She has wonderful manners, except for a slight limb buzz. I attribute that to the string lying on the edge of both limbs. No recoil, and as quiet as the quietest recurve I've ever owned. Less noise than my pronounced R/D longbow. If you can tell, I'm quite excited.

Ya know, I'm a woodcrafter at heart - I've built a couple of houses, several boats from a 13' kayak to a 22' offshore fishing boat, knives, furniture, and most anything you can think of. BUT, I'm leaving this bow-building stuff to you guys. I'll just have to make my money doing some weekend carpentry jobs and simply buy bows from y'all.

That thing looks very nice indeed. I just knew you were going to like those belly mounted limbs.
Great job.

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...
