Jawge,

I got to read that in depth when I got more time. Just stopped in for the moment and now got the kids yelling to go sledding.

Nice bow, but you always do nice work,

Nice going there Jawge!  :thumbsup:  

 I was getting a bit worried that you wasn't going to have any build alongs this year.  :(  

Glad to see your still at it! Thanks for the pics.

How would you say that lemon wood stacks up to the other woods that most of us use?

She shoots well, George. Actually, the same as any other bow with 1.5 inches of set. She became a bow pretty fast actually. I'd stack it right there with any of the white woods I have used. I ledt it natural 'casue the wood is purty.

Thanks, Mac. This one was more like flying without instruments. When I looekd at it for the first time Ithough I would make a longbow. I decided  that it didn't seem to have the elb style wood. Dunno why. Then I thought i would make a pyramid style handle bow. Nope. Figured wouldn't be enough wood at 1.5 in. wide so I went wit the safe design. She's a good one tho.
Thanks.

Thanks Jawge, used to sit at my daddy's knee while he made lemonwood bows in the basement. Brought the memories flooding back and a smile to my face.   :bigsmyl:
