Well Kirk, the string lies on the edge of each limb when strung, due to my drilling error! :o She has a little "bemp" sound at the shot. I'm sure the limbs are vibrating at the end of the shot sequence, and causing a slight buzz feel and sound. She shoots well though, so I'm gonna kill something with her! :)

She is very stable and accurate though. I'm gonna do things a little differently on the next one. Should have the supplies real soon. :)

All right folks! The second generation "Wassaw" is nearing stringing stage. I made some changes. I wanted the riser to be a little more stream-lined looking, so I backed the limb pad angle from 6 to 5 degrees. This should reduce the brace some, and give me a longer power stroke. I'm going with one bolt and two pins on this one.

I plan to drill my holes tonight, and it's scaring the hell out of me! I plan to drill the limb for bolt and both pins, and drill the riser just for the bolt insert. Then I will mount the rough profiled limbs. After bracing her, I can correct for any mis-alignment, and then drill my alignment holes in the riser. Anyone have any better suggestions? Due to the reverse riser, I can't see a way to check my alignment without a string on her.

I'll post some photos on here soon.

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