Very nice looking bow.  The combination of woods in the riser are great.  Timing was perfect with your build along.  Looking to start a bow myself.

Thanks everyone. But honestly, compared to making a selfbow, takedown recurves are a piece of cake.

----------

Al,

Those carts sure do come in handy. I had to break mine out again this past season when a small buck decided to go down in a bog a half mile from the parking lot. I need to start finding deer that run toward my truck after being shot.

--------------

bowmo,

What part of the Fox do you fish?

------------

Rick Perry,

I've seen your recurves. Coming from you, I consider that quite a compliment.

-------------

Shakes.602,

I think I've got between 10 and 15 hours into a bow. The first one was more like 40 or so.

-----------------

Scott,

Are you going to be at Berrien Springs this year? If so, I think I still owe you lunch.

Thanks for sharing Jason. And I agree those selfbows are much harder to make. Your bow is might sweet looking!

Nice bow and nice carp ! Can you recomend any good reading matreial on building laminated bows and the construction of the bow forms ? I was also wondering if you shot that carp from the bank or a boat ?

TheDude1836,

The Binghams videos are the best I've seen thus far. You can get them from various traditional archery retailers o direct at  www.binghamprojects.com

As for the carp, I shot it from the shore.
