Hera,
I don't mean to criticize, but some of us are not as experienced as you in building bows...could you PLEASE explain the pictures as you post them?..PLEASE??..I thoroughly enjoy your work..just wish I knew what I was looking at...if you can!

Thanks,
Roger

Hey Roger
The wood block I received was defective. It came with a through worm hole. I have to try to use the best of beautiful grain of the wood and avoid the hole at the same time. I think that's what "read wood" means.

I think that worm hole will cut off in window work.( I'm not 100% sure.if not,I can repair that defect)

(( May be that worm hole is a good natural sight bushings hole. LOL))
