Well they say the best lessons are expensive lessons. I built a new form and this was to be my first bow off this form. Although I checked and double checked I still ended up reversing my belly taper. :banghead: I was really looking forward to finishing this bow out. Who doesn’t love Osage?

I write butt end on all lams, left and right too
I would rather fail at something above my means, than to succeed at something  beneath my means

Sorry Bro...   I feel your pain...  Double triple, check and make a checklist...  Label the ends of your lams...

Some bows have been made with reverse tapers, why not put a string on it and see how it bends?
21 century longbows was made like that and according to Norbert Mullaney an excellent one.

KennyM and Mad Max suggested saving the riser. I think I’m going to try that and just start over :dunno:

That does suck! :banghead: No way to make it work? Looks to be a pain in the a$$ either way.
Would not hurt to shape the limbs little and see how they bend, if your going to trash them anyways.

Could be a new discovery that shoots 250 feet per second and always hits the bulls eye, or not

My Treadway mild R/D has reversed tapered lams in the limbs.

What taper rate is the belly lam?

And what is the back lam? Taper also?

Well heck, ya still got .001 taper overall.
I’m with the others. I’d profile the limbs and see what ya got before stripping them off. Maybe start your profile a little further off the fades to help stiffen the inner limbs.
