Man, this is slow goin, I've got it tillered to 22" and I think I the outer 1/3 of each limb is still a little stiff. To me they look pretty even, so I may just scrap a little more and call it good. What do ya'all think?
 This will be the top limb now.  :eek:  
 

 

You can see the troblesome limb has taken on a little set, oh well.

A little movement outside the knot, and the other side in the outer third.  Lookin' good.  I admit, I keep coming to this thread to see if you've blown her up yet.  This has been an exciting buildalong.

Dano ole buddy,if'n you're scared to draw it then send it to me.I ain't right in the head anyway.I've had lots of bows blow in my hands and haven't gotten hurt yet.Only one has been a selfbow,all the rest were compounds.LOL.Guess that goes to show which is a superior bow design.   :bigsmyl:

OK ya'all this ain't the snappiest bow I've made, but it's kinda cool to get it to this point. Here it's drawn to 26"
 
Same draw length reversed
 
unbraced
 

Now a little more shootin, and some Thunderbird.

Good job Dano. That was a difficult piece of wood. Make a straight piece knot free piece of wood seem like childs play doesn't it?

You done good gettin her bending.  Looks like two different bows in the two pics, that whoopdedoo really changes the look of the bend.  Great job, even if it was kinda boring compared to a good explosion.

Lennie, I know it was kinda nice of Mickey to show us how it could have gone. But you know before I get any bragging rights this bow has to last longer than his did.  :D
