For the student building the bow, congrats on a great project to undertake.  Do it right to the end and you will have a bow to be proud of.

To Ron, congrats on a great job with the bows and the students.  The students will have something to be proud of for years.

As I look back at my "Industrial Arts" teaching days, I wish I had this on my list of projects.  These will be keepsakes for the kids in the future and you will have added to the trad shooters in your area.

Again, congrats to all involved.

Wolfcoach,

Great looking bow. Makes me proud to see someone spending that much time and effert with the young shooters.

Now,,,,  I'm not trying to dump on your time in the spot light or anything but, don't you think you jumped the gun just a tad by roughing out the rider before bedding (mating limbs to riser) and tillering the limbs?

Bingham instructions shows bedding the limbs to the riser then desiding which will be top and bottom limb by the tiller...

Sorry guys, I haven't gotten a chance to do any updates lately.  We are in a pretty slow period of the build.  Lots of rasping and sanding.  Very little change or any thing to report.  I think we are going to install the limbs maybe in the morning for the first time.  I will get some pics up soon.  Sorry.

Finally, some pics to update the thread with.  Progress has been slow the last couple of days, but finally we have something for you.  Here we go:
.
 
.
Riser work.  Starting to actually take shape in the grip area.
.
 
.
Drilling the limb for limb bolts.
.
 
.
Removing the tape to reveal the beautiful grain of the Bocote.
.
 
.
Limbs installed on the riser.
.
 
.
Close up of the riser and limbs.  Things are starting to move a little faster for now.  We can get the bow past the rough stage and get ready to cut string nocks and hopefully get a string on it on Monday or Tuesday.  Thanks for sticking with us.

Man it's going to be a dandy. Yellows oranges and browns (fall colors) are my favorites. That riser is beautiful! Nicely shaped too   :thumbsup:

Rangeball,
Yes I think he is probably going to get an A.  He has worked extremely hard on this and is doing a great job.  

I also thought I would add some pics of the second bow that we are building in the shop.  I am helping a former student build this bow in the evenings and weekends.

If you guys dont quit I going to have to order from Binghams.I already have the TD recurve video.  Very nice bows, these guys should be proud of them and what they have learned. Good job. Might make themselves a nice little partime or fulltime business to.

do you allow 31 year old married men with 2 kids sign up for your h.s. shop class???!!!

That is wonderful that you can share your skill is such a way with teenagers.

Did you use 2" or 1 3/4" glass on these? Also was that another project bow laying under the table on the shelf in the picture?.

Doug,
We used 1 3/4" glass on both of these.  I like the thinner limb.  I am sure that it is all personal preference though.  Yes, that is another bow under the table.  It is one that was made by someone else that I know and he never finished it.  He has given it to me to finish.  I have been playing with it off and on.

Those are two beautiful bows.  That young man is very forutnate to have a teachers who has the knowledge to teach him how to build such a beautiful bow.  He is also a talented young man.  Good to see him using those talents on such a beautiful and useful piece of work.
