It's looking better all the time.  :scared:  There are some places in this world that you don't want to be known as the "Prince of Poof"  :scared:  

(unless you've got your own TV show and not about bow building)

Looking at the right limb in the bottom pic again this morning,being a little more awake.I think I just need to do a little scraping at #3 and it will come around.

I also for got to mention that without a backing,this little 56" NTN beauty is drawing to 30" with no ill effects.

I hope to get back at it after work today.

Lookin good Linc.  Just a little stiff on that one limb.  Lemme ask a stupid question.  It appears that your tips are bending to approx. the same distance.  Now if you weaken that one limb on the right in the bottom pic, will that mess up this or no.

Shane, It shouldn't unless you remove too much.

There comes a time in everyones life where you say Enough is Enough.I've come to that time.Did a little more tweeking after work and I think this is the best I'm going to try for.

Braced
 

Drawn to 28"
 

Flipped around.

Tiller looks fine.  Nice save.  It ain't over till YOU says it's over.  Congradulations.

Thanks for the kind words yo'all.

The stats are. 56"NTN 15#@28".Yes,I know it is a light weight.I'm well prepared to shorten it to gain back poundage but I don't think it will be necessary. This bow is really overbuilt!I've actually draw this beaut to 31".Just wanted to make sure that nothing would let go on her when she shoots it. I'm really becoming a wuss! It really felt comfortable to shoot this baby.   :rolleyes:  

Profile of the owner: This Lady is a multiple time cancer Survivor!!! Both breasts have been removed and lung cancer (she's never smoked!) She always has a smile on her face and enjoys life. She is going through tuff times of late as her husband just had bladder surgery for cancer.
Her main concern was draw weight.When she had surgery for her lung cancer,they went through her back on her right side.We have as yet not been able to set up a day and time for us to get together for her to try it out.I think her draw will be around 24-26".Consequently the draw will be lighter accordingly.

Thanks Curt.

I've got an apology and a thank you to make. I made a false statement as to the length.It is 68" NTN and a Thank you to DCM for questioning the length.The 56"NTN that I quoted is from another bow that I'm working on.For some reason that number stuck in my head and transferred itself to this bow.I am very sorry for the mistake,please forgive me as I wasn't trying to misrepresent the actual vitals.  :(    :o    :knothead:    :knothead:    :knothead:

No big deal Linc.  56" seemed short for that bow.

I think it was more the fact that you got the osage from Sci-Fries than my teachings.  :notworthy:    :notworthy:    :notworthy:
