3 pc build along

For those who have never build their own bow,hope your next trophy might well be shot by your own handcrafted bow ,even though I didn't have any outdoor shooting experience .  :banghead:    ;)

Lookout!  I think Hera's getting inspired!  I hate whatever that was bored a hole in a nice block of wood.  I bet you'll figure a way to use it anyway.  Love to see your work.

The wood block I received was defective. It came with a through worm hole. I have to try to use the best of beautiful grain of the wood and avoid the hole at the same time. I think that's what "read wood" means.

I think that worm hole will cut off in window work.( I'm not 100% sure.if not,I can repair that defect)

(( May be that worm hole is a good natural sight bushings hole.  LOL))

Hera, you are "reading the wood" in a wise way.  That hole will either complement the bow, disappear in the sight window or be covered by the rug and strike plate (maybe an insert on the out side for a quiver).  This is a fun build-along.  Thanks for posting it!  :bigsmyl:

Angle 1 = angle 2
It's not easy without bandsaw.I have to do it carefully when I cut it by pull saw and sander.

In this picture, original shaft design seem 1" above the deepest grip(correspond to center line),but I prefer 1/2".

Why I lower that distance? In my callow opinion,it will get more power and balance if arrow close to the center line.
