So happy he likes it.  Thank you again for allowing me to be part of that project.  I hope he puts it to good use next season!

Our local high school still has a full woodshop, college/industry training weld shop with industry sized cnc, and a full auto shop with paint booths. Glad to see other places still teach kids to use their hands....skills that will never be out of demand.

I'd like to see more pics of the form when you get a chance. Looking at building a few of my own when I get my shop rearranged.

Finally back to school after several days of awful weather.  With the forecast ahead of us, this may be our only day in session.  We have finally gotten back to work.  My student is making great progress.

I have taken advantage of the recent snow storm and days out of school and gotten some work done on my bow however.

That's great time management right there!  Nice looking bow you've created.

This build is awesome! I sent a link to the thread to my old high school shop teacher. He and I both built recurves my junior year.

In my day we never built bows in woodshop, we made stuff like wood ashtrays.  Maybe because it is a weapon.

Finally getting around to put an update online.  String grooves are cut and shaping limb tips.  It wont be long and we will be shooting for the first time.
