Hello Hera; Thank you for another great build along, it's very nice of you to include us ( tradgangers) via pics in your bow building. I'm again following this build with interest. I have however a question concerning the use of the 2 bamboo laminations in the riser accent stripes. Do you have any concerns about the bamboo's  strength ?? I've never built a bow so i cannot offer an opinion  as to whether bamboo is strong enough to hold the riser together. Perhaps some one versed in bow building can offer some advice. just interested and concerned. Great build Hera!

I don't know is bamboo strip strong enough or not,in my thinking,BL use thin maple strip as the riser inlay,so I think bamboo is ok.And,rosewood are tough.
IMO,I don't worry about the riser is  straight or not,I care the wood expand and constrict cause by humudity and temperature.

Hera, not only can you cut straighter with a hand saw than most can with power tools, you say more with fewer words than anyone I know and I can understand everything you are saying! Love your build-alongs. You have a big fan base over here. When I see your posts, I know they are worth a look.  Mike
