It is nice to see your post Hera. Dont sell youself short. Your work is amazing. As far as the work part goes I know what you mean. After that we can build some bows-kinda let off some steam there by being our own boss.

Hello
I want to show you my favorite design . The first bow I finished in spring 2008 ,up to now i have build five peaces
with different # and wood on this form.
The first : Limbs are made from clear glass /wenge/action bambo
Riser-wood are ebony and padouk and BD glass between the acer-furnier-lines

The bow 63" (64") has 48# @ 28" and a very smoth draw but the best ..... the speed :mrgreen: .
(edit :speed 440 grain arrow by 29,5" drawleng not your rules ;) )
arrows speed 210ft/s with 9 grain/# , my R/D LB are not so fast !
14 string FF+

The second bow on one picture below is 56#@28" birdseye yew on the limbs and ebony and thujaroods on the riser.

Those are some very unique looking bows Nicodemus. Beautiful work. From the looks of your numbers you should really think about entering the upcoming Walk the Talk competition.
