I hope to get a chance to do some tillering tomorrow.  In retrospect, I wish I would have used the purpleheart and cherry riser pieces in reverse, with the purpleheart glued to the belly.  Oh well, if she shoots well, I can overlook a cosmetic design flaw.  LOL!!

looks good to me. Just go slow on your tillering.
start at the fades and work your way out. I didnt read the whole thread, so you maybe a expert and im telling you something you already knwo if so, just ignore me.  Good luck none the less, I really love making these tri-lam deflex/reflex bows.  great sweet shooters with good cast, and reliability!

I'm gonna have to disagree with starting at the fades.  It's already bending there and it's easier for me to tiller if I get the rest of the bow caught up first.  I started at the fades on my first r/d and it ended up being a kids bow...only one that's come in under weight.

Thanks guys.  I don't think I will have any trouble with this one becoming a kids bow.  It might become another man's bow if it doesn't make the heavy weight I am wanting , but I would have to remove the whole layer of Bamboo Flooring to go that light.  LOL!!!  

I think I am going to stay away from the fades until I get the mid limb moving where I want it.  I will let you know how she is turning out when I get some time to work on her some more.

Its has a very nice shape to it, how long is your handle?  Also as mentioned earlier, be very carefull working your fade areas, midlimb is where you'll be concentrating on must, it's a challenge to get the reflex smoothed out on this type of bow.

The riser is 10" Fade to Fade.  Would trapping the middle third of the belly on each limb be a good idea as a start in tillerring?

I trap all my bows first then concentrate on tillering the belly, the main reason I trap from bamboo to the belly is to relieve some stress that bamboo has on most belly wood, by doing this your belly wood will be working at a better ratio than having your bamboo over power its use.

Sure can Kenny. Either as a belly or backing. Makes a great bow if kept dry.

The tillering is coming along well.  I only got a chance to work a little on her today.  I hope to get a few minutes tomorrow to do some scraping and take some more pics.

Well as most things I build for myself, before I get them close to being done, someone else wants it, so alas it will not be mine!!!!  It is going to shoot in at about 49#@28" and is a SWEET shooter at that.  Here are a few almost finished pictures.  I still have to finish sand and finish shaping the handle.  I might deepen the arrow pass a little bit more as well.  I also still have to put on tip overlalys and shape the nock ends.  Here she is in her current conditon.

Caster, that is going to be a VERY nice bow. Lucky fellow. If ya would come to Iowa I could shoot it and you could take home a deer with real antlers instead of that wooden fellow on the first picture. I want to see it all polished!

My wife and I saw that DEER in a craft shop in Amish country in Ohio a few years ago.  Everytime I walked past it, I broke out in a belly laugh.  She had her mom pick it up for me as a Christmas present when they went there for a visit.  I bet I laughed for 30 minutes straight when I opened it Christmas morning a few years ago!!!  If I get to Iowa, you can bet on me stopping by for some of Ma's fried Chicken.  Thanks for the compliments by the way.  Did you want to see the bow all polished up, or the buck after he rubbed that barklike velvet off and got those (horns) all polished up???
