Experiment...? Like building lams out of q-tips?
Wonder how snappy that would be  :bigsmyl:

I considered torch bluing some very thin titanium and using that as a veneer but I'm worried it would corrode at some point.

If it’s under glass and with a good finish, I would think that risk is pretty slim.
I like the idea!

Titanium, well that is an idea.
I’m thinking barbed wire, since we are experimenting.

Think they may be gonna start charging to use it?

Too bad, I got pics...

I don't have to build a new form, just modified one I had a little...

Got the lams picked, this gonna be a junkyard dog.  Stuff out of the scrap bin that I just couldn't pitch but not  big enough to cut 2 pairs from....

Riser of 2 woods  I had radius cut but not sure what for …

May have to send some cash with it so the victim can buy a real bow... LOL
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Somehow, Kenny, I expect your scrap bin would the envy of a great number of us.

Stic, there's a lot of pink left there! That damn pink just won't go away!

I have my riser ready for the 3rd glue up and it still looks like this. Probably be the last time I build one like this even if I like it.

I stopped off Friday and grabbed a nice looking chunk of spalted Tamarind for my victims riser. Now I have to wait on a bit more cactus juice so I can stabilize it. It's going to get an accent run through it most likely, just not sure what I want that to be.

I have a few choices of veneers but pretty sure I will go with my personal favorite... but who knows, I am as fickle as a school girl after all.

Not sure yet if this is gonna be my swap bow or not. I usually try to build something clean and classy but this thing might be more of a lady of the night. What do you think, Cedar or Apple veneers?

Stic, There's some surprises inside the riser I'm not sure about. I saw your post about stabilizing some walnut, does it take resin well?

Travis, either will look great! I would prob go with apple lams as I like limbs lighter color than riser, but that's just me...
